Description Sebastian Marten 2008-02-09 06:32:40 EST
Description of problem:

RHEL 5.1 doesn't recognize the RTL8111/8168B onboard network Card.
RHEL 5.1 (kernel 2.6.18-53.el5) does not detect or configure this NIC.


On Fedora 8 with kernel 2.6.23.1-42.fc8 the kernel's r8169 driver correctly
identified and configured the on-board NIC.
 
Please backport the driver to RHEL.

Comment 2 Prarit Bhargava 2008-05-08 09:52:30 EDT
Please be advised, that Bugzilla is not a support tool. It is an
Engineering and Community tool. So although all changes to Enterprise
Linux go through Bugzilla and Red Hat considers issues directly entered
into Bugzilla valuable feedback, there is no SLA around it.

If this is a production issue, please report it to your Red Hat Support contact.

Thank you.
