Description Phil Hale 2006-05-04 19:03:49 EDT
Description of problem:
When booting into the new 2.6.16-1.2107_FC5 kernel on my EM64T box, I cannot
make the network work.  I cannot connect to servers. When I try to ping the
gateway I get nothing.  And when I try to nslookup a server I get "cannot
allocate memory" errors on the query.  Reboot into 2.6.16-1.2096 and I'm able to
connect again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.16-1.2107_FC5 x86_64

How reproducible:
every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot into kernel.
2. network services (cups, ntpd, etc..) hang.
3. turn off network services and boot into os and no network connection.
Actual results:
Can't get a network connection.

Expected results:
Boot and get on the network.

Additional info:
System in question: Dell Precision 670N - Dual Xeon EM64T processors, 1 Gig RAM.
 Intel 82545GM Gigabit Ethernet Controller
Comment 1 Valentin Guggiana 2006-05-04 20:00:49 EDT
Exactly the same for me on a Sun Fire X4200 and a GigaByte Board with nForce4
Ultra chip set. Both machines are running the x86_64 version on AMD dual core
cpus. Network chips are different.
