Description Carl Krauthauser 2003-08-30 13:30:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20030716

Description of problem:
With the newly installed kernel-2.4.20-20.8 on an ASUS P4C800-E motherboard with
a 2.8 GHz P4 800 MHz FSB, during boot sequence, it claims that it cannot
determine the network card (it is an Intel Ether Express /1000 card) , and
configures it as a generic E1000 card.  Subsequent to this, the card no longer
functions.  If I reboot with the old kernel-2.4.28-14, the network card is
recognized, and everything works fine.  Rebooting again with the new kernel,
when kudzu sees the "changed" card, if I tell it to ignore the change, the
network card still does not work.

I have the kernel-2.4.20-20.8 installed on a dual Athlon MP2400 on a TYAN S2469
motherboard with the same network card, and everything works fine

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install kernel-2.4.20-20.8 on a P4 system as described above.
2.Boot system with this kernel.
3.System boots with no network capability

Actual Results:  System boots with no network capability

Expected Results:  System should boot with network capability
