Description dcjanes 2000-06-12 14:29:38 EDT
I just set a box up to be a firewall using two old SMC Ultra ISA NICs. I 
set the interrupts and everything, started the network and my system hung 
(cold re-start, fsck needed).

The problem appears to be that the smc-ultra driver requires another 
module to be preloaded before it is loaded.  Adding a line like

pre-install smc-ultra modprobe -a 8390

to /etc/conf.modules fixed the problem, but shouldn't linuxconf take care 
of these dependencies?  The install program did, since this machine lacks 
a CD-ROM and was installed using http.

What does "grep smc-ultra /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep" on the affected
machine show?
Comment 2 dcjanes 2000-06-15 21:27:05 EDT

Looks right to me. I'm still using the stock kernel from 6.2, as the machine is 
not really connected yet. I plan to roll a custom kernel this weekend, probably 
from the virgin 2.2.16 sources.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-06-05 12:24:02 EDT
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
