Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122355
Compaq Netelligent 10/100 PC Card Ethernet controller no longer works after FC2 test 3 install
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:44:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Booted from boot.iso file burned to seperate CD from CD1 of FC2 Beta 3
and installed using "redhat askmethod" via a http apache webserver.
Anaconda used the Compaq Netelligent 10/100 PC Card for the complete
installation and everything went ok.
After the installation during the first reboot eth0 hardware is not
found. Looking at the GUI via redhat-network the NIC selection is put
on a Xircom card. Adding / Changing to a Compaq Netelligent 10/100
PC card is not possible.
The Netelligent cards in question worked from RH7.2/8/9 through FC1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC2 test 3
fresh install via http or via network GUI
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from mini boot.ISO and install via http
2. problem occurs on first boot
What's your /etc/modprobe.conf look like?
the /etc/modprobe.conf file contents:
alias eth0 xirc2ps_cs
alias usb-controller ohci-hcd
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 121742 ***
removing the first line "alias eth0 xirc2ps_cs"
from /etc/modprobe.conf fixed the problem.
