Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 501249
link not up with forcedeth drivers with kernel > 126.96.36.199-140
Last modified: 2009-05-21 16:54:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Link is not getting ready
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot up kernel 188.8.131.52-140 or 184.108.40.206-142 (koji)
no link detected
00:14.0 Bridge: nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller (rev a3)
May 18 08:36:52 gerwin kernel: forcedeth 0000:00:14.0: ifname eth0, PHY OUI 0x5043 @ 1, addr 00:1d:60:0e:46:56
May 18 08:36:52 gerwin kernel: eth0: no link during initialization.
May 18 08:36:52 gerwin kernel: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
ethtool eth0 also tells me there is no link.
We have another desktop with a nforce chipset too which has the same problem. Booting the system back to 220.127.116.11-126 does "fix" the problem
please try the scratch build here when it completes.
Seems to be fixed in the .146 build, thanks for fixing Kyle :)
