Description of problem:
After upgrading to 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4 the system no longer sees my onboard VIA Rhine ethernet adaptor, coming back with an error something like "adaptor doesn't seem to be present".  

If I boot back to the 2.6.14-1.1656_FC4 kernel the adaptor is detected and works fine. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  network adaptor found

Comment 2 John W. Linville 2006-02-21 15:30:16 UTC
There aren't any changes between those kernel versions that would cause the 
adapter to not be recognized.  Could this be related to bug 179891? 
Please try the test kernels here: 
Does that work any better for you?

Appears that it may be related to the other bug as you suspect.  Installed 
kernel-2.6.15-1.1832_fc4.jwltest31.i686.rpm and card detected fine.

Comment 4 mcisar 2006-03-10 15:46:09 UTC
Update, problem still present in kernel-2.6.15-1.1833_FC4

Comment 5 mcisar 2006-04-04 02:31:01 UTC
Update, problem still present in kernel-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4

Comment 6 Damon 2006-04-07 23:58:05 UTC
I am having this issue with the latest 2.6.16-1.2069_FC4 kernel and a VT6105M
Rhine-III onboard NIC, but unlike the others, the NIC works fine with
2.6.15-1.1833_FC4.  With the 2069 kernel, the system reports that the NIC seems
to not be present as indicated by others.

Comment 7 John W. Linville 2006-05-19 14:44:30 UTC
I posted a patch upstream today that should resolve the issue, once it filter 
down into Fedora.  It is equivalent to the patch from bug 179891.
