Description Ian Romanick 2007-06-28 17:55:13 EDT
Description of problem:

The uli526x driver isn't included on the install image.  This makes network
based installed (e.g., via FTP) impossible.  This driver is (was?) included in
FC5 2.6.19 kernels, so it seems odd that it is missing here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

F7 final.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from install CD on ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 motherboard
2. Select ftp install
Actual results:

Can't find driver for network card.

Expected results:

A happily installed FC7 system.

Hello Ian,

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel? Also, if you are able to
test with the latest Fedora 8 image, available from:


that would be appreciated as we hope to resolve install issue such as this
before the next release.

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.

Once the system is installed, it's fine.  It's just the kernel / initrd on the
install disc that's lacking the correct driver.  I should be able to give the
FC8 install image in the next day or so.

Okay Ian,

Thanks for the info. I've added an F8 kernel blocker bug to make sure this
doesn't get missed for release. Its certainly in the latest stock F7 kernels so
like you I don't see any reason it will be missing from the installer for F8 though.

Comment 4 Chuck Ebbert 2007-09-18 17:19:07 EDT
Not a kernel bug.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-18 17:56:18 EDT
It's currently included in F8
