e1000 carrier detect doesn't work on X60s
Last modified: 2008-02-07 23:25:37 EST
FC6 kernel 2.6.20-1.2944 Xen
"Intel 82573L Gigabit Ethernet controller"
Didn't work with original FC6 kernel either (2.6.18 something).
/sys/class/eth0/carrier _always_ contains 1, even if a cable is unplugged.
Thinkpad X60s I mean.
Also doesn't work with kernel-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7.x86_64.
Symptoms are as follows.
If I boot with a live ethernet cable plugged in, everything works.
Boot without one plugged in, and carrier will not subsequently be detected.
A workaround of sorts is to rmmod and modprobe the e1000 driver, but this causes
subsequent attempts to suspend to disk to fail (see bug 245107).
Last shipped 2.6.20 kernel works fine on my x60s.
Also I try with last official FC6 update.
But I havn't try to play with suspend functions.
(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.

Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a

Thanks for using Fedora!
