Description Brent Nordquist 2001-01-17 12:26:23 EST
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.
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-01-18 16:26:05 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Beta-3
Comment 3 Erik Troan 2001-01-18 16:31:00 EST
FTP or NFS install?
Comment 4 Brent Nordquist 2001-01-18 16:36:33 EST
FTP (anonymous).
Comment 5 Erik Troan 2001-01-18 16:59:14 EST
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.
