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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
I am attaching text files containing information from the following
lspci -n (lspci-n.txt)
lspci -v (lspci-v.txt)
and I am also attaching my /etc/modules.conf file.

Could you try the kernel at
and see if that fixes this ?
I tried the 2.4.3-15 kernel for the i586 arch to no avail. What do I try next?
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.
