Description of problem:
This is Dell Latitude CPx laptop running up-to-date Fedora Core 2. It
has a PCMCIA 3Com 3cCFE575CT CardBus Ethernet controller.
I'm booting the laptop with this PCMCIA Ethernet controller connected
to our network. I get this warning while entering init level 5:
3c59x device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialiaztion.
interface 'eth0' not found
This is not really a problem as the network eventually works. It's
just that the warning shouldn't appear. This is a vanilla Fedora Core
2 installation. I didn't modify anything in the configuration, this is
a fresh Fedora installation. The installation process or initscripts
should make sure this wwarnings doesn't appear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Actual Results: A warning message.
Expected Results: No warning message.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
The simplest solution to this is to remove the 'alias eth0 pcnet_cs' line from
/etc/modprobe.conf, probably. Essentially, there's configuration information
there that shouldn't be.
