Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start install
2.only sees 3c905C-TX/TX-M not D-Link System Inc RTL8139

Actual Results:  no entry in /etc/module.conf for RTL8139
"alias eth1 8139too"

no /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 startup script

Expected Results:  be able to config the D-Link System Inc RTL8139 on install

Additional info:

Needed to run /usr/sbin/redhat-config-network-gui
and manually install ... BTW needed to select:

RealTek RTL-8139, SMC EZ Card

from the menu ... not very obvious.

Can you provide `/sbin/lspci -n` as well?

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-20 22:04:04 UTC
Bill, do you have any ideas on why this wouldn't be found? 

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-20 22:11:17 UTC
Nope. It's in the pcitable.

Comment 5 keith adamson 2003-02-21 00:22:42 UTC
I had a previous redhat 8.0 installation on this box.  Anaconda detected this
but  I didn't do an upgrade.  I did a full reformat/install.  Does it care about
the ethernet setup of a previous installation at all?  

Comment 6 keith adamson 2003-02-21 00:23:52 UTC
BTW it worked fine on redhat 8.0

Comment 8 Mike McLean 2003-03-13 23:58:55 UTC
I do not have the exact hardware listed above, but I have similar hardware that
uses the same drivers.  I am so far unable to replicate this bug.

How did you boot the installer (e.g. bootdisk.img, boot.iso, cd), and what
installation method did you use (e.g. cd, nfs, ftp, http, hd)?

Did you use any driver disks, and if so which ones?

Comment 9 keith adamson 2003-03-14 17:02:13 UTC
Just the phoebe 3 iso image.  Boot from CDROM.  I'm sure the media is ok (I've
used on a couple of other systems).

If you want some diagnosics I can give it another shot (when I boot the CDROM it
doesn't list this NIC).

BTW in the existing install this NIC is not brought up on boot as I use it for
testing purposes (I bring it up manually when I do testing).  That's why I asked
above if anaconda cares about the config of the existing install.

Comment 10 Jeremy Katz 2003-09-25 20:47:24 UTC
Is the final Red Hat Linux 9 / the current Severn beta any better?
