Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 32746
Network Install with NIC AMD Pcnet32 impossible
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
On a machine with a PCI NIC AMD Pcnet32,
i could not perform a network install.
The log on tty4 say network is unreachable.
On the same machine with a 3Com Etherlink III, there is no problem.
The AMD Pcnet32 work just fine with RedHat 7.0 and kernel 2.2, 2.4.0

This is Raw Hide 20010319
Any idea ?
What kernel version is this ?
Could you try the latest kudzu as well, as there has been one such bug fixed
this is the kernel shipped in Raw Hide 20010319 (current).
In fact, I could not try kudzu because the installation could not start.
But if you want to say to me to test card AMD PCnet32 once an installation
finished, it is what I am on the point of doing while reinstalling with
a 3COM Etherlink 3.
it is slower, then with presently :)
The problem appears well to be a kernel problem. Attached is the kernel bug
output during the loading of the module.

I am confused, it was a physical problem.
I whip myself shame :).
