pppoe/eth0 does not work
Last modified: 2009-11-18 08:34:02 EST
Description of problem:
Today i tried kernel-188.8.131.52-75 from the updates-testing repo, because:
i wanted to c, if 503287 persists there:
Then i saw, that pppoe said:
Jun 8 07:27:59 vaako pppoe: Timeout waiting for PADO packets
my ethernet card is onboard of an Asrock, ALiveDual-eSATA2:
Jun 8 07:27:11 vaako kernel: eth0: RTL8168b/8111b at 0xffffc20010a7a000,
00:19:66:5a:cd:ea, XID 38000000 IRQ 43
(the IRQ is different from 184.108.40.206-170.2.56.fc10.x86_64:
there it is IRQ 35:
Jun 8 07:39:02 vaako kernel: eth0: RTL8168b/8111b at 0xffffc20000334000, 00:19:66:5a:cd:ea, XID 38000000 IRQ 35)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
i just tried it once
Steps to Reproduce:
2. bring up the ppp device
ppp gave up and exited after some attempts
there should have been an internet connection
that happened already some years ago (i forgot the kernel version)...
i tried it again
it failed again...
and again the IRQ was different...
fc11's kernel from the amd64 dvd doesnt support my eth0/pppoe, too... -arne
Adding 'pci=nomsi' to the kernel boot options should fix this. Can you confirm that?
now it works as before...:
> uname -a
Linux vaako.riddick.homeunix.org 220.127.116.11-75.fc10.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon May 25 15:45:14 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
> /sbin/ifconfig ppp0
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr:*** P-t-P:*** Mask:255.255.255.255
do i need a BIOS upgrade?
The fix for this is in 18.104.22.168.
hm - i installed it...
BUT: it still needs "pci=nomsi"...
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
works fine with "pci=nomsi"... -arne
