Description of problem:
After upgrading the kernel to 2.6.10-1.9_FC2, I was unable to start my
network interface. In the system logs:
Jan 30 12:12:11 localhost modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting natsemi
symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
Jan 30 12:12:11 localhost kernel: natsemi: Unknown parameter `irq'
I worked around the problem by removing:
options natsemi irq=10
I think system-config-network has a tendency to insert this line. It
looks as if the natsemi driver module does not support the option
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install natsemi based NIC
2. Configure with system-config-network
3. modprobe natsemi
Actual Results: system could not insert natsemi module. eth0 would
not come up.
Expected Results: successful detection of the network interface.
Possible duplicate of bug #146129?
should be fixed in the -1.753 kernel in updates-testing
Dave, should we dupe bug #146129 against this bug since you have a fix for it here?
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
