Wake on LAN stopped working
Last modified: 2008-06-12 09:20:11 EDT
Description of problem:
Wake on LAN was working on my workstation (used to run backup jobs) on F8 for
the last couple of months. It stopped working recently. It was last working
with 18.104.22.168-50.fc8 (i686) according to my last logs. An improper shutdown
from f9 Beta may have triggered the problem or the upgrade to the latest F8
Shutdown from WOL works
Power supply disconnected Yes
Fedora 9 kernel Yes
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shutdown from F8
2. Send Wake on LAN "magic" packet
Machine does not power on.
Machine to power on.
05:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) LAN
Controller (rev 01)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation DeskTop Board D945GTP
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 22
Memory at 4d000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
I/O ports at 1080 [size=64]
Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 2
Kernel driver in use: e100
Kernel modules: e100
I rebuilt the kernel from the src RPM, but with e100.c (sha1
3790acc25249d64c2b37fb3304d044cb1077b146) from Linus's git tree.
Wake on LAN now works.
The switch to the 2.6.25 kernel in F8 fixed the problem.
