Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:29:50 EST
Description of problem:
RealTek 8169 GigE, r8169 network driver will hang the system during dhcp until
the cable is physically removed whether at boot or single user mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load RealTek 8169 GigE adapter into machine
2.boot system (hangs when starting network)
3.ifup eth0 (hangs system when trying to configure)
Network should come up very quickly just like it did on FC6
Same as Fedora Core 6. A working network.
Fedora Core 6 works just fine. Fedora Core 7 has gone backwards.
Maybe this should be closed as a duplicate of bug 242572
I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.
I'm closing as suggested as there has been no comment to indicate otherwise.
