Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 110830
garbage text configuring new NIC
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed FC1 on a system with a Netgear NIC which uses the
"natsemi" driver. Some days later the NIC failed on me and I replaced
it with a Linksys (model NC100 rev 11) which uses the tulip driver.
When I booted up, kudzu recognized that I now had a Linksys card
instead of the Netgear card and did the fixup to /etc/modules.conf.
kudzu then prompted my for the network parameters with a text/curses
based program (if this is not kudzu, then that is the componenet this
should be against). It took my inputs OK but when I used the <CR> or
<TAB> key to move between fields, I got garbage at the curson's
position. Everything seemed to work OK except for the garbage characters.
Please note that I am running rhgb.
This is essentially 'fixed' in the devel tree, as the UI is never shown.
