Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 24223
Net install with 3c509 omits alias eth0 in modules.conf
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:45 EDT
After a bootnet.img "LILO: text" install with a 3Com Etherlink III card
(specifying "irq=5" parameter, but no "io=" parameter which defaults to
0x300), the "alias eth0 3c509" ends up missing from modules.conf;
therefore, the network doesn't come up when the system first boots.
[Florence beta-2. See also bug 22853 which sounds similar, but not quite
the same, and in any rate was marked "closed in B2".]
Nope, different problem. For ISA cards, if it's configured by the
installl, the installer should write modules.conf.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Beta-3
FTP or NFS install?
Known problem with ftp/http installs, and hard to fix (the module isn't in the
second stage [too big], so the install forgets it exists). Doesn't happen w/ PCI
cards because kudzu fixes modules.conf for us.
