Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120360
Driver not found for PXE/NFS install (via-rhine)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:39 EST
Description of problem:
Doing PXE install, kernel successfully loads via-rhine driver
(see below), but doesn't recognize device for install phase.
* loaded via-rhine from /modules/modules.cgz
* inserted /tmp/via-rhine.ko
<6>eth0: VIA VT6102 Rhine-II at 0xdffffe00, ..., IRQ 11
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every time (is that what you're asking?)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot via PXE (images/pxeboot/vmlinuz, images/pxeboot/initrd.img)
2. At [Installation Method] screen, select "NFS image"
Next screen reports "No driver found", and prompts for
Select Driver|User a driver disk | Back
Driver not found under Select Driver. There is no driver
Loaded driver should be used.
Will attach lspci -v output in next step.
Created attachment 99218 [details]
lspci -v output from a previous installation (fc2test1)
For reference, this is a SOYO SY-K7VME motherboard, w/1.6GHz Duron cpu
Probably related to bug 120289...
I can confirm this bug on a mini-itx board with dual on-board
via-rhine. Console 4 shows eth0 & eth1 found VT6102 and the module
loaded. Via-rhine is not in the list "Select Device Driver to Load".
This stops installation...
Same thing as Jebba here.
The board is a dual-nic via epia cl10000, onboard via rhine nics.
Network install is not working, however an FC1 install from cd worked
fine before (with working network after install, I mean).
Bummer. I tried boot.iso from FC1.
I can get on the network now but it complains the stage2.img doesn't
match my cd media.
I don't think this has anything to do with the PXE/network
after all. I tried doing a "hard drive" install this morning,
and got the same "No driver found", prompt for Select Driver, etc.
My best guess is that /sbin/loader is getting confused by
my machine's configuration. Did I mention that I do _not_
have a CD-ROM on this machine?
I tried building the anaconda SRPM, but it wants
kudzu-devel >= 1.1.x, and I've only got 0.99 on my working
RH9 system. I guess I could update that...
If you boot from CD1 to "linux rescue" does the driver get loaded and
the nic set up correctly?
I don't understand comment #7, why would the installer ask for a
driver if you select a hd installation? Did it show a list of network
drivers or other drivers?
And how do you boot if you have no cdrom? Or do you mean just a cd-writer?
