Description Brent Nordquist 2000-06-28 08:44:14 EDT
Upgrade from 6.2 to Winston Beta-2.  Network was configured and working in
6.2 with "alias eth0 3c59x" in /etc/conf.modules before the upgrade.  The
linuxconf RPM was removed from 6.2 (my standard practice); I'm not sure if
that has anything to do with this.

After the upgrade and reboot, eth0 didn't load; ifconfig shows only lo0.  I
saw the warning about conf.modules vs. modules.conf, so I removed
conf.modules.  However, the new modules.conf was missing "alias eth0 3c59x"
as conf.modules had.  Added this line, modprobe eth0, network restart, and
I was up and running.

(See bug 12974 which has similar-sounding symptoms, but doesn't look like
the same issue to me.)

99% chance this was an upgrade issue with the wrong modutils being installed.
Comment 2 Brent Nordquist 2000-07-06 17:42:15 EDT
Can you be more specific?  Do you mean Beta-2 had a wrong modutils, and this is
fixed in Beta-3?  Hopefully you didn't mean that the stock RedHat 6.2 had a
"wrong" modutils and can't be upgraded?
