Description Jussi Mikkola 2005-03-18 00:39:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040922

Description of problem:
the computer is an x86_64 with NFORCE3 chipset. There is a network card on the motherboard, and I also have a 3Com network card installed.

After the installation, I do not have network connection. I cannot run any network configuration software from the desktop (they just don't start). And /sbin/ifconfig gives only IPv6 address (I don't know why, and if it is correct etc.). But I don't get any IP4 address to either of the cards. 

I have tried using dhcp with both cards (one at a time) + I also tried the NFORCE card with the current drivers from NVIDIA. 

I will attach dmesg and lsmod with the bug report. I'll be happy to provide more  info, if needed.

I have also tried to install differet setups. Like standard desktop settings + workstation with some additional software etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the system
2.startup after installation
3.no network

Actual Results:  I don't have any network access, and no access to network tools that would help. Also tries system-config-network, fatal python error, could not import  gnomevfs. Aborted. 

Expected Results:  Network up and running.

I don't know, but can be related to the same issue?
I've filled a bug but like you no response!

Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done


Comment 6 Dave Jones 2005-09-30 07:17:32 UTC
Mass update to all FC4 bugs:

An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel ( As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.

Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.


Comment 7 Dave Jones 2005-11-10 20:26:08 UTC
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.
