Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:36 EDT
Description of Problem:
Install RC1 on Either DS10 or XP1000 .
Install goes fine, but network not functional.
RX Packets: errors 10
TX Packets: errors: 12516
Tried both tulip and de4x5 drivers
Ethernet Contoller on both the DS10 and the XP1000 DECchip 21142/43 (rev 41)
Consistently repro on DS10 and XP1000 systems with DECchip 21142/43 (rev 41) Ethernet controllers
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RC1 on a DS10 or XP1000.
2. Try to use the network.
assigning to kernel.
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)

This is not the case for me, I am afraid. Or at least not reliably.
Is this still the case with the latest errata kernel for 7.1 alpha?
(that is, either with the tulip driver or de4x5 driver)
Closing. Seems to be a non issue these days
RH 7.2 Alpha
