Description Jack Neely 2005-10-17 19:57:54 UTC

The Marvell Yukon 88E8050 PCI Express 1.0a gigabit ethernet interface is not
supported on RHEL 4 Update 2.  This hardware is included in the Intel 915GRV
uATX Motherboard.

Comment 2 John W. Linville 2005-10-18 20:19:03 UTC
Please try the test kernels here: 
These contain the new upstream skge and sky2 drivers.  I think your hardware 
is covered by sky2, which is not yet mainstream.  However, please do report on 
whether or not it works for you, and any problems you might observe...thanks! 

Comment 3 Jack Neely 2005-10-20 17:22:21 UTC
kernel-smp-2.6.9-22.3.EL.jwltest.76 does work.  Ethernet device appears as normal.

Comment 4 John W. Linville 2005-10-20 18:32:04 UTC
Cool!  Can you confirm that you are using the sky2 (and not skge) driver?  

Comment 5 Jack Neely 2005-10-20 19:09:53 UTC
Yes.  I'm using the sky2 module.  Thanks!
