Description of problem:
the 3c940 cards are supported through newer versions of the sk98lin,
and are becoming a standard card to be found in a lot of workstations
today. both the kernel used for network installations and the
default kernel should support this card to help deployment of RHEL WS
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all kernels for RHEL WS.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modprobing sk98lin will give a "no such device" error.
Internal RFE bug #124210 entered; will be considered for future releases.
As you can imagine, we have finite development/testing/support
resources and are not able to support the full universe of drivers.
We have to prioritize our work areas based on corresponding broad
customer benefit. In the case of this driver, we frankly haven't seen
enough interest yet to warrant focusing work on the driver updates.
Our development pool for the upcoming major release (ie RHEL4) does
have a more contemporary version of the driver. You may wish to keep
your eyes open for the upcoming announcement of beta availability and
verify that things are operational there.
Marvell Yukon Gigabit ethernet chip seems to be on several modern
motherboards. Driver upgrade is really needed and driver should be
changed from unsupported to stable kernel.
With quick search I found Marvell Gigabit ethernet on several new
motherboard products from ASUS, MSI, and Epox.
Ditto on the Yukon Gigabit ethernet chip on several motherboards.
No love trying to install RHEL3 on a Shuttle box (SN95G5 Athlon64).
We're considering this platform to be the next desktop standard for
our company, but having trouble with our RHEL3 image working on it.
Please consider updating driver for RHEL3.
