USB cable modem not detected by anaconda
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:17 EST
The Scientific-Atlanta USB Cable Modem isn't detected by anaconda at
install-time. It only shows an internal network card as eth0.
Anaconda shows both eth0 and eth1 network interfaces.
The modem is listed properly by s-c-n on Hardware tab. I've added eth1 device
What driver does the device use?
usbnet, here are some entries from /var/log/messages on FC4:
Nov 27 08:56:10 mariusa-ro kernel: usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using
uhci_hcd and address 2
Nov 27 08:56:10 mariusa-ro kernel: eth2: register usbnet at usb-0000:00:1d.1-1,
CDC Ethernet Device, 00:0a:73:f7:9e:40
usbnet is just a driver framework, not the exact driver being used.
Created attachment 121660 [details]
output of lsmod
Complete list of lsmod. Is the driver "mii" ? If not, how to find out what it
Still doesn't work on FC5 anaconda.
For USB cable modems, you need the usbnet and cdc_ether kernel modules. We
lacked the cdc_ether.ko kernel module in the stage1 image. Fixed in rawhide.
