Description C Duvall 2003-10-13 18:28:04 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030925

Description of problem:
When I boot, eth0 never successfully comes up. It is configured, I'll attach
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 in a minute. If I run dhclient at the
command line after boot, it sets up eth0 as expected.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot

Actual Results:  Watch eth0 fail to init

Expected Results:  eth0 should pull an IP over DHCP

Additional info:

Relevant line from boot.log: Oct 13 18:20:44 hermit ifup:  failed; no link
present.  Check cable?

What driver?
Comment 3 C Duvall 2003-10-14 08:03:52 EDT
The driver module is 3c59x.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-14 09:58:35 EDT
The driver appears to not be reporting link status correctly.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
