assigning to kernel.
Comment 2 john.goshdigian 2001-06-08 15:35:54 EDT
using de4x5 driver appears to provide a functional network.
Possilble release note: Use de4x5 driver for systems that have the onboard DECchip 21142/43 Ethernet Contoller
(like  XP1000 and DS10)

> using de4x5 driver appears to provide a functional network.
This is not the case for me, I am afraid.  Or at least not reliably.
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 2002-01-17 20:06:28 EST
Is this still the case with the latest errata kernel for 7.1 alpha?
Comment 5 Michael K. Johnson 2002-01-17 20:07:16 EST
(that is, either with the tulip driver or de4x5 driver)
Comment 6 Phil Copeland 2002-08-12 14:59:02 EDT
Closing. Seems to be a non issue these days

RH 7.2 Alpha
