Description of problem:
when the module eepro100 is loaded at boot time it displays 
an error message such as "unidentified symbol" (sorry I don't
have more details in my logfiles)
and refuse to load. Obviously the connection to the netwrok 
This happens systematically for the kernel-2.4.20-19.8  and kernel-2.4.20-19.8. 
in the previous kernel, kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0 eepro100 works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.20-19.8  and kernel-2.4.20-19.8

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot on kernel-2.4.20-19.8 or kernel-2.4.20-19.8
2.load module (if not done automatically) insmod eepro100

Actual Results:  error messages
no network connection
eth0 not working

Expected Results:  a network connection

Additional info:

can't connect my network without it....

Can you try e100 driver instead?
Comment 2 Dominique Mangeol 2003-08-19 12:52:42 EDT
e100 does not work either in those 2 kernels (works fine in the previous one)
Comment 3 Jeff Garzik 2003-08-27 13:33:49 EDT
Can you provide 'lspci -vvv' and 'dmesg' output?
