Steps to Reproduce:
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? If you are, please provide
output from lspci -vvxx and lsmod to enable people reviewing this to try and
help resolve the issue.
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.
Here you go. Current version is 18.104.22.168 (6-rc1). Problem persists

# modprobe atl1
bring up the card for you? It is not listed in your lsmod output...
No, it does not. Module is loaded successfully (checked with lsmod) but card
does not work.
What does dmesg say after loading the module?
Please, wait until monday. I won't be able to get to my work pc until then.
No dmesg output after modprobe.

Fix for kernel 22.214.171.124
Addons to apply for kernel 2.6.23
Patches are tested on the ASUS P5GC-MX motherboard with the F-7 based kernel.
All works ok.
Please, add also Attansic L2 ID to the pci_ids.h as described at http://pci-
Adding cc: for driver maintainer.
I'm actually maintainer for atl1. atl2 is not merged and does not have an
upstream maintainer, though we are in contact with Atheros (owner of Attansic)
to try to make this happen. I don't have any atl2 hardware to work on this
myself directly, but if you'd like to work with me to get atl2 merged to prevent
breakage like this in the future, please email me privately.
Driver page is:
Test and report.
Version 2.0.3 at the above URL should work with any 2.6.22, 2.6.23, or
Presently all of my work on atl2 is focused on upstream merging, with the hope
of having it work out-of-the-box by the time Fedora 9 is released. Once that's
done we'll work on backporting it to older releases.
If someone else wants to package a kmod for Fedora 7 and 8 in the meantime, I'll
be glad to assist, but that's not a process I'm familiar with.

Should fix tx bytes statistics (rediff for 2.0.3)
Patch was maked without real test on hardware. To test it try to send some big
file and view ifconfig tx bytes statistics (assume that other activity on
network does not affected due to very small traffic).
P.S. Possible to constant error may be present (const * num_pkts +

This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
