Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159250
e100 driver does not recognise intel 8086:1229
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:18 EST
Description of problem:
Attempting a network install of either RHEL4 Gold or RHEL4 U1 will leave you at
the Select Network driver screen. Manually selecting e100 will just drop you
right back at the same screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Card is Intel 82557/8/9 [Ethernet pro 100] (rev 08)
PCI ID 8086:1229
Steps to Reproduce:
1. network install of rhel4 x86_64
nic not recognised
should work like it does under RHEL3.
I'm going to try and install RHEL4 i386 on this machine and see if its x86_64
sure enough, the i386 flavor sees the nic card fine.
Odd...the PCI ID lists are not arch specific...perhaps this is BIOS related?
Might there be a BIOS update available for this box?
This definitely strikes me as "wierdness"...is there any correlation to warm
vs. cold boot? Or to what was booted previously?
Any chance you could install the x86_64 version some other way (i.e. CD or
using another NIC), and then attach a sysreport to this bug? Thanks!
