Comment 7 Radek Bíba 2009-01-22 04:48:21 EST
Thanks for fixing it in Fedora, Robert. The package can go to regular updates, at least the one in F10, which I just tested on an F10 box. The F9 package looks good too when I look into its contents and extract and run the ethtool binary. Unfortunately, I'm getting an HTTP 500 when trying to provide feedback on the fedoraproject site, thus doing so here :)

However, let's keep the status this bug report in NEW until it's being worked on in RHEL.
Comment 8 Robert Scheck 2009-01-22 07:06:56 EST
Sorry Radek, I tried to told the fscking Bodhi not to touch the bug reports,
but it is doing that anyway, I've updated the Fedora Infrastructure ticket for 
this: https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/ticket/312#comment:3
