After a short time after networking, I got the following kernel message

changing version. I think "beta2" is meant, not RC2 .->

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-01-15 21:30:52 UTC
Re-assigning to Michael Johnson

Which module are you using ?

Comment 5 Pekka Savola 2001-02-20 16:56:31 UTC

Haven't tried the other, but this card didn't complain with it during RHL7 or RHL7 betas.

I'm not sure how important the message is (doesn't look too good), but the networking still
works after it so I guess it's just some bug causing an odd frame get lost in transmit.

Comment 6 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:38:53 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
