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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot machine
Actual Results: network adaptor not found
Expected Results: network adaptor found
*** Bug 180427 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
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.
Update, problem still present in kernel-2.6.15-1.1833_FC4
Update, problem still present in kernel-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4
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.
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.
