Description Cynthia Dale 1999-07-14 18:57:20 EDT
Customer says:
The system I am using to install Redhat on has a D-Link
DFE-530TX (10/100BaseT PCI Network Card) in it which uses
the Via-Rhine driver for that card. For some reason it is
not detected during install. I can swap out the card for a
different NIC and it detects it fine. Once the install is
complete I can change the network card line in
/etc/conf.modules to read "alias eth0 via-rhine", shutdown
the system, swap out the network card with the D-Link card,
and boot up the machine again, and it works fine. Does your
install not detect Via-rhine cards? If not, why not? Is
there a workaround to get it to detect that card? I've had
to reinstall the OS several times. I can not use a different
network card in the system.

this should be fixed in the errata boot disk
