network problem with 3com card
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:13:02 EST
Description of problem:
network interface doesn't work properly with default instalation of
Fedora Core using a 3com 10/100 ethernet card (Boomerang).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install a fresh copy af Fedora core using 3com card.
Steps to Reproduce:
the network doesn't work
Erh, could you offer some more info?
Also, i would suspect this is more of a kernel driver problem rather
than one of net-tools.
In order to narrow it down please provide the following info output:
rpm -q glibc kernel
And of course some more details on what doesn't work. :-)
Read ya, Phil
Yes, I agree that the problem is with the kernel driver.
lspci lists card as 3Com Corporation: Unknown Device 8050 (card id is
During install the card was recognised as boomerand and driver was
loaded somehow (but don't ask me how). I changed a card to Cyclone (as
I had problems) and it work. When I reverted back:
- kudzu removed Cyclone configuration
- it didn't print a word about Boomerang
- modprobe 3c59x doesn't work with "no such device" error message
I currently have kernel 2.4.22-1.2135.nptl i586.
This card worked until today on RedHat 7.3 with latest kernel errata
applied (smp kernel).
