Description Marius Andreiana 2005-11-26 04:35:45 EST
The Scientific-Atlanta USB Cable Modem isn't detected by anaconda at
install-time. It only shows an internal network card as eth0. 

Expected results:
Anaconda shows both eth0 and eth1 network interfaces.

Additional info:
The modem is listed properly by s-c-n on Hardware tab. I've added eth1 device
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-11-26 17:14:59 EST
What driver does the device use?
Comment 2 Marius Andreiana 2005-11-27 02:06:22 EST
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

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-11-30 22:16:58 EST
usbnet is just a driver framework, not the exact driver being used.

Complete list of lsmod. Is the driver "mii" ? If not, how to find out what it
is? Thanks

Still doesn't work on FC5 anaconda.
Comment 6 David Cantrell 2007-03-21 17:20:26 EDT
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.
