I'm pretty sure that I've got a fix for this one; please try these
packages 

 http://people.redhat.com/davidz/hal-cvs20050117/

This contains a workaround for the broken b44 driver that doesn't like
to have the mii registers looked at. You will need a 2.6.10 kernel
from either Rawhide or FC3 updates. Thanks.

Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2005-01-20 18:50:15 UTC
So, I've got someone on the hal mailing list to test this

 http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/hal/2005-January/001686.html

I believe this is exactly the same issue so I'm closing this bug,
since this is fixed in hal-0.4.6 which will be in Rawhide and FC3
updates soon.
