Description Ahmed Kamal 2007-01-20 06:29:38 EST
Description of problem:
Upgrading to latest kernel 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6, caused me to loose my ipw2200
connectivity. iwconfig wouldn't find it, and 'ifconfig -a' does not show it!
While booting, udev would say something like "Disabling IRQ#11", and I got this
Jan 20 12:56:03 localhost kernel: irq 11: nobody cared (try booting with the
"irqpoll" option)
I also have always got this warning "Jan 20 13:04:31 localhost kernel: PCI: If a
device doesn't work, try "pci=routeirq".  If it helps, post a report"
So, I booted with "pci=routeirq", and the card did work again! Since the line is
asking me to post a report I am doing it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot fedora
2. ifconfig -a does not show eth0
Actual results:
eth0 is not shown

Expected results:
eth0 card show show up in ifconfig -a

(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!

and thanks for filing the original report!
