Description Eliran Itzhak 2007-07-27 16:52:15 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a system configured with and all is well. It has a 3com
NIC and configured with dhcp. all is well with that kernel.
After upgrading to the system hangs during Init with the msg
"Determining IP information for eth0" and just sits there.
Selecting During grub "solves" the problem, so I'm quite sure the
problem is with that kernel.

Something else I've tried is setting a static IP for the machine and booting,
but then the machine has no IP at all.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:
Normal boot

Additional info:
Please contact me if you need more info on that. The problem is kind'a general,
so I dont know what other details you need.

Got the same problem with Intel chipset (945g/ich7) on Asus board with GBLAN
It lookes like the HW-Interface doesnt go up and DHCP failed.
But it works on some kernel version before.

Comment 2 Armijn Hemel 2007-07-27 23:47:34 UTC
I'm seeing similar problems, but then with DHCP. The problem also goes away when
booting to an other kernel, even though the network problem does not always
happen. The card in this case is a  Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10).

The latest kernel- solves the problem. Please reopen or create
new bugreport if your problem persist. See bug #250003 for more info.
