Description Georg Schwarz 2003-11-09 13:00:51 UTC
Fedora incorrectly automatically uses the e100 driver for an Intel EtherExpress Pro10+ PCI NIC. According to Intel's docs, that NIC is not supported by that driver, and indeed it does not work (the card is detected, but no frames appear on the cable; at least for my BNC connection).
Workaround: manually change /etc/modules.conf to use the eepro100 driver, which supports the EtherExpress Pro10+.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-11-10 17:01:08 UTC
Jeff, is there any plan on updating e100 to handle all the cards that
eepro100 supports? Loading eepro100 for a subset, when it will claim
other e100 cards in the system, is not really a workable solution.

Comment 2 Jeff Garzik 2004-01-12 19:05:50 UTC
e100 should support all cards in the family.  If it doesn't, that's a bug.

What happens when you load e100 on your hardware?

Comment 3 David Lawrence 2004-09-29 19:38:06 UTC
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/
