Intel 82575EB NIC doesn't work with igb driver provided with 5.2
Last modified: 2011-03-04 05:04:14 EST
Description of problem:
I've tried doing a netinstall on a SuperMicro box that uses the Intel 82575EB chipset for the integrated NICs. The network does not work, either when I try DHCP or manually specifying static network information.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try to perform a netinstall using an NIC that has the above Intel chipset. In my case it was this box: http://supermicro.com/products/system/4U/7045/SYS-7045A-WT.cfm.
Steps to Reproduce:
DHCP doesn't work and manually specifying network information in the installer results in a hanging install.
Network should work.
I have solved the problem by using an updated version of the igb driver. Here's a link to the discussion that eventually resulted in the solution (and a description of the solution is there as well):
Stefan, This should have been fixed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 released this past week.
This should be fixed by now. Please reopen if you still see this problem.
