Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2001:081 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Linux kernel 2.2.19 available providing minor bug fixes 2001-06-12 04:00:00 UTC

Description William Sudderth 2001-04-25 15:24:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)

IBM 10/100 Etherjet CardBus adapter is detected at boot, but cannot 
establish a network connection; worked in previous kernel release

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Boot to stock 2.2.19-6.2.1 kernel and pcmcia-cs

Actual Results:  System cannot establish a TCP/IP connection

Expected Results:  System should have established a TCP/IP connection

Network is DHCP-only; cannot test whether it would work if I had a static 
IP.  Machine is a stock ThinkPad 600E.

I took a look at Kernel Traffic and the linux-kernel archive and it 
appears to this newbie that there is work going on in the 2.4 tree to 
correct the problem; I hope it will filter down to the 2.2.x kernel, RH 
6.2 level.

I'll attach relevant portions of /var/log/messages.

I have the same problem.  I have a Xircom 10/100 PCMCIA ethernet card.  It is
detected when pcmcia cardmgr starts (emits two beeps to indicate success), but
it cannot establish a network connection, though ifconfig shows eth0 as up, no
packets can get in or out.  I am using a static IP configuration.  Everything
worked fine before I upgraded to kernel-2.2.19-6.2.1.  All previous kernel RPMs
for 6.2 work fine.

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-06-27 09:18:52 UTC
A new 2.2.19 kernel has been released yesterday that has the old xircom driver
back in. If this does not fix it, please reopen this bug.
