Description Chris Morrison 2005-03-29 14:56:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
I am experiencing a very strange and frustrating bug with my network under Fedora Core.

I have experienced this bug before on both i386 and x86_64 distributions.

I am currently running Fedora Core 4 test 1 for i386 on my AMD Anthlon 64 3700 Laptop. I have a USB mouse plugged in. The laptop is also fitted with a touchpad that I believe is fitted to an internal USB port.

When I boot the computer, my network interface eth0 will not come up unless I move the mouse or unplug and then plug back in my USB mouse.

Once my computer has booted up, if I try to do anything that involves accessing the Internet or network, my network connection will not work unless I move the mouse.

If I am downloading a large file, I will have to keep moving the mouse continually until the download has finished. The network connection is completley dead until I move the mouse, as soon as I stop moving the mouse it goes dead again.

I assume this is some kind of interrupt problem with the kernel or network card driver. I have attched the output from the dmesg, dmidecode and lspci commands and the contents of my /proc/interrupts file which I hope will assist you in tracking this bug down.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Make any attempt to access the Internet or network on my laptop.  

Actual Results:  The problem described above.

Expected Results:  The network should fuction normally without the need for me to keep moving the mouse.
