Description of problem:
NIC driver is not loaded. This was opened as a ticket for RHEL 4.5 and corrected in 4.7.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Install on a system with MCP79 Ethernet Controller.
No Ethernet devices found
NIC Found and Configured
the support for MCP79 will be present in upcoming RHEL 5.4.
Please check some testing kernels available at
and inform me if it solves your problem.
The above kernels fixed the MCP79 NIC support. However, the mini's also have an "Agere Systems FW643 PCI Express1394b" FireWire 800 bridge. This kernel does not support it. Do you want me to open another ticket for that?
Yes, you can open another ticket for it. This issue I'm closing now.
