I just did a network installation (FTP) auf RHAT 6.2. The computer I used
(the good ones were already taken ...) was a Compaq Prolinea with a SMC
Ultra (ISA) 10 mbit network card. Installation works fine, but after reboot
the network did not start correctly. I found out that only the <PRE>alias
eth0 smc-ultra</PRE> line in conf.modules is missing.
Q: Bug with all ISA cards or just a problem with this card?
Brock, can you reproduce?
Just tried to reproduce this on another machine (Dell OptiPlex GX1p, disabling
the integrated network card in BIOS). Same as before. However, I do not have any
other ISA cards but those SMCs ...
duplicated in test lab ...
Similar problems exist for ne2000 clone ISA NICs here.
Is bug #10633 a duplicate of this one? Jonathan.
*** Bug 10854 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Fixed for the next release.
This seems to be broken for every NIC; it happened with 3c59x and epic100
Is there going to be a new version of updates-disk to fix this, or do we have to
wait for Redhat 7.0? ;/
