Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 14993
upgrade e100 driver to 1.2.1-build1
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
Please upgrade the Intel e100 driver to v1.2.1-build1, from v1.0.7 that is
in pinstripe. v1.2.1-build1 adds support for additional Intel NICs that
All I find (at
I don't know where you were looking) is 1.1.1, not 1.2.1build1.
Could you give me a url for the 1.2.1-build1 version?
1.2.1-build1 needs to be obtained from Intel development directly. I can't
provide it to you (unfortunately). The 1.1.1 driver on their web site is
pretty good, but doesn't include support for some upcoming cards. Intel's NIC
group should be in discussion with Red Hat already on obtaining drivers on a
regular basis (so Intel claims).
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Release-Candidate #1
OK, got a copy of the 1.2.1 driver from Intel, and integrated
it into our current kernel source.
Do you have preproduction eepro100 cards you want to test with
the latest driver? In case you do, you should know that the
kernel I'm putting up for you to test the e1000 driver also
has the latest e100 driver.
Yes, we can test this driver with preproduction NICs. Thanks for including it
in the kernel.
Matt, the 2.2.16-19.1 kernel has not changed the e100
driver relative to the 2.2.16-19 kernel you got earlier.
Since this is in, I'm closing this. Open a new bug
report if you find bugs in the driver. Thanks!
