System has no configurable options.
*Please NOTE*: From Nov. 1 on, the status of COMPATIBLE is going away and all
the certs would be posted as CERTIFIED. If the devices in your box require the
3rd party drivers to work properly, Red Hat does not support the drivers. Vendor
needs to provide the downloading URL in your company's website (NOT in the 3rd
partner's website, in this case, you need to provide the 3rd party driver
downloading URL in HCL's website). After that, We will open a
kbase (knowledge base) to cover this case. In our public cert list clients can
open this kbase which follows your cert.
If you can't provide the support on your website, at least you should provide a
support telephone NO. and we will list it in the kbase file.
About driver "e1000", you replaced the "e1000" driver which shipped in RHEL5 to
NIC, this is not allowed. and the "e1000" driver is updated in RHEL5.1, so could
you please install RHEL5.1 and see if the NIC works with RHEL5.1's driver ?
