Description Răzvan Sandu 2008-10-19 23:18:37 EDT

Description of problem:

Please add support for these network cards in kernel - this chipset is now present in some very popular network cards, such as the Asus NX1101:

Sundance Technology Inc / IC Plus Corp IC Plus IP1000 Family Gigabit Ethernet

Here the complete smolt profile of a machine I've recently tested on CentOS 5.2, but the situation is the same in Fedora (I've tested on Fedora 9 too):


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel	2.6.18-102.el5.r8169.9

Many thanks,
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2008-10-19 23:33:02 EDT
This should be supported by the ipg driver.
Please attach a dmesg from the failing fedora kernel.

That's not a Fedora kernel. It's a Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel.
Comment 3 Chuck Ebbert 2008-10-21 10:11:09 EDT
Supported in Fedora 9 and rawhide (Fedora 10)
Comment 4 Răzvan Sandu 2008-10-24 08:31:00 EDT

Yes, I'm able to confirm that it's supported now in Fedora (I've not tested for awhile).

Here's the smolt profile of a machine that succesfully runs such a card:


and the relevant output of lspci -vvv:

Please, is there any plan to include this in RHEL/CentOS ?
