Description nrhudy 1999-06-14 13:56:51 UTC
I have noticed with all users running Hedwig that some
network cards based off the Tulip driver (most notably
LinkSys EtherFast cards) do not function.  This is
characterized by a lack of network card initialization at
startup, followed by an inability to open eth0 (and the
message "Delayed eth0 initialization").  In addition to
that, issuing "insmod tulip" returns only that the device is
busy and does not elaborate.  Both the standard tulip.c
within the kernel and the LinkSys-provided tulip.c have been
tested, and both have returned the same results.  The only
conclusion that I can arrive at is that Hedwig contains some
sort of bug which interferes with the operation of
Tulip-based cards; it is also notable that such activity is
not present in Apollo.

By the way, I forgot to mention that I have been reading reports of
similar happenings on LinkSys mailing lists and the like, if that
helps any.

This appears to be the same issue as #2744, so I'm duplicating
