amd pcnet32 adapter is not detected
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:19:45 EDT
When installing RC1 my amd pcnet32 adapter is not detected. This adapter
is provided by VMWare, and was detected properly under RH7.0. modprobing
pcnet32 seems to load the module just fine. I just tried an upgrade to
RC2, and this problem still shows up. :-(

Hm, that *should* be recognized. What does /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
say for this card?

I'm not missing something here, am I? When I do a 'workstation' install it
should give me some option to configure the network card, right? And if it
hadn't been detected, if/when kudzu detected it, it should have given me the
option to configure some networking for it, right? I'm nearly 100% sure that
'workstation' installs of Red Hat Linux 7.0 gave me the option to configure the
networking/network card during the install.
If you install the latest kudzu (from the 0309.0 tree), does the entry
in hwconf change to have the correct driver listed instead of 'disabled'?
Updating to that kudzu got me a prompt about configuring the card on reboot, and
it also lists the right driver in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.
Cool, thanks for verifying that.
