Description Jan Alles 2004-04-28 13:18:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040211 Firefox/0.8

Description of problem:
The module 'ne' is not present in the kernel. Hence the nic
configuration gui cannot configure NE2000 nics despite offering the
possibility in the adapter chooser dialog.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-network-1.3.16-1 / kernel-2.6.5-1.327

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run system-config-network
2. Tab 'Hardware'; 'New'; 'Ethernet'
3. 'Adapter': NE1000, NE2000, and compatible

Actual Results:  Command failed: /sbin/modprobe ne

FATAL: Module ne not found

Expected Results:  Module ne should have been loaded.

Additional info:

It'd be nice to also have the installer know this driver. Couldn't do
an NFS install of fc2t3 with an NE2000 clone installed.
Comment 1 stohn 2004-05-03 23:18:19 EDT
Confirm.  Driver was also missing in Test 2.
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-05-24 05:59:50 EDT
what about the ne2k-pci module?
Comment 3 Jan Alles 2004-05-24 06:47:40 EDT
It's an old ISA card. ne2k-pci didn't work.
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2004-05-24 06:53:17 EDT
CONFIG_NE2000 is not set in the kernel config
reassigning to component kernel
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2004-11-29 04:50:51 EST
reenabled in update kernel
