Description Bobby Brinkley 2001-08-17 21:44:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.6-3.1 i686)

Description of problem:
After upgrading to the 2.4.3-12 kernel through up2date, no internet
access.  I tried the command "ifup eth0", but still get the message
"Delaying eth0 initialization".  I had internet access with the previous
2.4.2-2 kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot into the 2.4.3-12 kernel.
2. Watch the bootup messages.

Actual Results:  I tried ifconfig and it doesn't show the eth0
configuration.  I tried netconfig and it has my card configured, but is
unable to activate it.

Expected Results:  Expected internet connection at bootup via DHCP.

Additional info:

I am attaching text files containing information from the following

	lspci -n  (lspci-n.txt)
	lspci -v  (lspci-v.txt)
	dmesg   (dmesg.txt)

and I am also attaching my /etc/modules.conf file.

Could you try the kernel at
and see if that fixes this ?
Comment 6 Bobby Brinkley 2001-08-18 10:38:51 EDT
I tried the 2.4.3-15 kernel for the i586 arch to no avail.  What do I try next?
Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-20 06:41:44 EDT
"i586 arch"
I just checked and I only fixed it for i686... argh
Anyway, I uploaded a 2.4.3-16 in the same place, which should have this fixed
for i686 as well.

That did the trick, thanks.
