Description Pekka Savola 2000-05-29 08:30:56 UTC
I'm doing an FTP install from all-updated redhat-6.2 tree using
the latest updates disk and bootnet.img.

I have two network cards, a tulip (eth0) and a 3c59x (eth1).
Installing over the network works fine, but at first boot
eth0 and eth1 fail. (eth0: delaying initialization, eth1: can't find

This seems to be caused by the fact, that there's nothing relating to
network cards in /etc/conf.modules.  If there was something like:

alias eth0 tulip
alias eth1 3c59x

in the file, I bet it'd work.

boot.img written to the CD and issue 'text updates'.  Using the latest updates.

In keyboard selection, pressing 'f' brings me to "fi", not "fi-latin1" as with 
bootnet.  Forgot to add/remove something?

My previous partition was all softare-raided.  All four mount points are shown
as Raid001 -  Raid0004.  Wacky.

I enter my IP address manually.

_The most critical glitch_:

After the reboot, going to multiuser will hang at eth1 to 
"Bringing up interface eth1 _".

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 is:

/etc/conf.modules is created correctly for both cards (eth0: 3c59x, eth1:

What about the additional comment, on 2000-06-04?

There were three issues of varying importance there.  I guess I should have 
filed different bug reports for them.

Comment 4 Pekka Savola 2000-06-13 20:28:57 UTC
Filed separate bugs on remaining issues, may be closed.
