Description Eugene Kanter 2003-10-08 23:06:43 EDT
Description of problem:

> I got exactly the same kudzu problems in fresh Fedora Core. All reboots
> after first kudzu prompts me if I want to remove realtek 8139 and then
> add exactly the same device. If I do not ignore and let it add/remove
> there is no network and questions will still show up next reboot.

OK, please file a bug, attach lspci output, /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
when booted in single user mode, and the output of kudzu -p once
the system is booted.

Same in fedora core 2 fresh install.
Comment 5 Erno Härkönen 2003-10-22 14:37:29 EDT
Anaconda tries to configure network cards with kudzu at post installation, but
fails because network interface is active at that time. I had similiar situation
with my 8139 network card.

Please try the kudzu- packages at:

These may resolve some of your issues.

Behavior is present in RHEL 3 as well. (And no updated kudzu package
Comment 9 Eugene Kanter 2004-04-02 16:15:12 EST
frsh install FC2 test1 and updates from rawhide up to test2 seems to
be fine.
Comment 10 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-02 17:53:49 EST
Marking resolved in rawhide.

Michael Ellis - an updated kudzu package for RHEL 3 is in the U2 beta
Comment 11 Michael K. Ellis 2004-04-07 23:49:41 EDT
Is there a date (or good estimate) for when RHEL3 U2 will officially
be released?  We're going to redo our PXE-based installs, and if U2
will fix the problem and is out soon, we'll just wait for that rather
than redoing based on U1.
Comment 12 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-08 00:12:48 EDT
I don't have the date off the top of my head, but there are beta
packages and ISOs in RHN now that you can check.
