Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23760
Install defaults to eepro100
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:18:03 EDT
The installation uses eepro100 by default. Compaq would like for it to
default to use e100.
Assigning to kudzu.
For *everything*? Eww.
What particular cards does Compaq need this for?
NC3120 Fast Ethernet NIC PCI 10/100 (Intel 82558)
NC3121 Fast Ethernet NIC PCI 10/100 (Intel 82558)
NC3122 Dual Port Fast Ethernet (Intel 82558)
NC3123 Fast Ethernet NIC PCI 10/100 WOL (Intel 82559)
NC3131 10/100 Dual Port Modular base
NC3132 Fast Ethernet Dual 10/100 Upgrade Module
NC3133 100FX Upgrade Module (Intel 82558)
NC3134 Fast Ethernet NIC (Intel 82559)
NC3135 Fast Ethernet Upgrade Module (Intel 82559)
That doesn't help us; we need the lspci output.
In any case, it's very unlikely that we'll change it for the majority
of cards unless Intel changes the licensing so that the driver is allowable
in the standard kernel. You'll have to talk to Intel about that. After that,
we can consider the driver on its technical merits.
Compaq Bug #: 192315
Can you explain WHY you want the e100 driver?
The eepro100 should just work; e100 is known to cause problems AND is only
available for i386 architecture.
