Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3532
Cannot get Intel/Digital 21143 chipset to work.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I am trying to use a Danpex 21143 NIC card with your Linux
6.0 and cannot get it to work. This is a 100 meg FIBER
OPTIC card. This card fails with both SC and ST
connectors. I have tried both the TULIP and D21X4X drivers
without success. We also have a TX(Copper Wire)model of
this card that I can get to work with the D21X4X driver,
not the TULIP driver though.
I'm changing the component to kernel because that's where driver
problems will be resolved ...
Additional testing revealed that both the FIBER CARDS and TX(COPPER
WIRE)cards work with the TULIP driver under Linux 5.0. Something is
different in 6.0 which causes the driver to no longer work.
6.0 ships with the .89H version of the tulip driver. There
is a newer version available directly from the author at
could you give that a try?
If that doesn't work, perhaps trying to force the media
with the tulip module's "options" parameter. something like
insmod tulip options=8
would force full duplex fiber media, if the eeprom on the card lists
it as available.
sending the output of module insertion with 'debug=2' set should
give us some information that might be useful.
