Description Terry Chan 2004-03-24 18:58:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
System:  Dell PowerEdge 2650 dual-CPU 2.8Ghz Xeon system
         RAID 10, dual Intel ethernet adapters

I did an initial install of RHEL WS v. 3 and there were no problems 
to kernel v. 2.4.21-4.ELsmp.  After the install, ran up2date.  After 
updating packages, applied kernel updates to v. 2.4.21-9.0.1.ELsmp.

After updating, upon startup, for the aacraid, e100, and e1000 modules
received the following msg:

   - AUTOINSTALL not set in its dkms.conf        Module ignored

a few lines later:

         device eth0 does not seem to be present.  
         Delaying initialization

The machine starts up but with no connectivity and eth0 is considered

The one other error msg in syslog is:

Mar 24 10:11:49 minotaur insmod:
parport_lowlevel failed

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Installed RHEL WS v. 3 from downloaded CD images
2.  Updated packages and ran up2date.
3.  Applied kernel updates noted by up2date

Actual Results:  Described above

Expected Results:  expect no error msgs and normal network connectivity.

   - AUTOINSTALL not set in its dkms.conf        Module ignored

we don't ship dkms .... is this a dell preload distro by chance ?

Comment 2 Terry Chan 2004-03-24 22:39:34 UTC
It is not a Dell preload distro.  Although I did use Dell's OpenManage
software to help start the install but I used RHEL images downloaded
from Red Hat's website.

Comment 3 Jeff Garzik 2004-07-14 19:47:12 UTC
We don't support modified kernels, which DKMS can interfere with.
