Fedora hangs on boot process because of a NetgearGA311 NIC
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:50:43 EST
First of all, this is about Fedora 7 but I couldn't find it in the version
Second, since this is my first bug report, I hope that I'm choosing the right
component. I apologize if it's not.
Description of problem:
Fedora 7 (no test version) was installed on a pentium 3@800 on a QDI Advance
10E (with latest BIOS) with a NETGEAR GA 311 gigabit NIC.
The problem is that during boot, everything hangs in "bringing up eth0
interface". For some reason it just won't go past that. Now, if I enter
interactive setup and say NO to eth0 bring up, boot process will continue
normally and when I log on, I can just write "ifup eth0" and everything is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tried removing ALL hardware except the VGA (geforce 256 pro) but the result
was always the same. I also tried a "no-name" 100mbit NIC which worked
perfectly without any problem during boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove all other hardware
2. install netgear NIC in other PCI slot
Everything hang at the same exact point.
Sorry if this is not the correct way to report this kind of bug but as I said,
it's my first bug and I don't quite know how to do it.
