Description kkress 1999-05-09 05:03:43 EDT
RH5.2 pcnet32 modules gave a SIOCADDRT error and the
loaded the second card.
RH6.0 fails to load the pcnet32 modules twice.
I have two Allied Telesyn AT-2450 cards and am using ipfwadm
and ipmasquerading to protect an internal network.
After upgrading, only one card is recognized. Here's a
snippet from the messages file:

I've run into this problem with RH 6.0 and some of the internal RH
web servers.  Upgrading to the pcnet32 driver that is from the 2.2.11
kernel and recompiling it with the 2.2.5-22 kernel in RH 6.0 fixes
the problem.  It will detect more than one pcnet32 card.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-19 16:59:59 EDT
this is fixed in the latest kernel in Raw Hide.
