Description of problem:
When installing FC6 (and also FC5, I've tried both), the network card is not recognised. In the case of FC5 the network page in the installer simply does not appear; the installation works but it is impossible to get the network running. With FC6 you get asked to select a network driver; I pretty well tried them all and none worked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put in FC6 (or FC5) CD #1
3.Press F12 to get the boot media menu; choose CD
(See description above)
A network working driver should have been installed.
The network on this machine works fine with Kubuntu 6.06 LTS. I just put in the Live CD and found everything worked, so that's what I've installed. So now I have FC6 on my desktop machine and Kubuntu on my laptop. I can live with that, but it is a pity not to be able to use FC6 on both.
(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)
I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer
Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.
Thanks for using Fedora!
I tried the Fedora 8 KDE spin live CD and the network works fine with it.
