Description Joshua Jensen 2004-02-24 16:20:29 UTC
Description of problem:

The problem is that when the network script initializes the cards, the
actual initialization of the cards isn't yet finished by the time the
netfs script runs.  A bad work-around is to rig the random script
(which runs after the network but before the netfs script) to simply
sleep for 10 seconds.  This works well, isn't pretty.  Shouldn't the
kernel initialize the driver and card immediately?

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

RHEL3 AS with all updates

How reproducible:

tg3 driver being used for two NICs

Additional info:

lspci -v output attached

This is causing BIG problems on Oracle servers.... nfs mounts don't
mount when the machine is rebooted.  Please address!
