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:

lspci -v
uname -av
rpm -q glibc kernel

And of course some more details on what doesn't work. :-)

Read ya, Phil
Comment 2 Tomasz Kepczynski 2003-12-29 08:15:12 EST
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).
