Description pberge 1999-08-30 18:55:02 EDT
in /etc/conf.modules

netcfg put "ne io=0x300" and "ne io=0x240" .... The second
one replaces the
first so the first ethernet card is not found.  netcfg
should use "ne io=0x300,0x240".
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-09-20 13:30:59 EDT
netcfg never writes to /etc/conf.modules.
Perhaps you were using linuxconf?
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-22 13:47:59 EST
I think that "netcfg" was a typo for "netconf" which is part of linuxconf.
I've since heard of this bug in linuxconf from other folks.
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-02 12:38:59 EST
This should be fixed in linuxconf-1.16r10-1 (or later) that we will release
as an errata update after testing.
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-15 15:58:59 EST
1.16r10-2 released
