Description Michael E Brown 2001-08-21 01:01:03 EDT
Description of Problem:

Intel's newest Gigabit Ethernet cards are the PRO/1000xT. The pci id is as

01:0c.0 Class 0200: 8086:1008 (rev 02)  
01:0c.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation: Unknown device 1008 (rev 02)

The RC1 e1000 driver does not detect this card. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.4.7-2
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-21 03:27:42 EDT
Unfortionatly, it's not THAT simple ;)
Intel uses the PCI ID to set an Adapter->MacType variable, which in turn
determines how the physical interface is programmed. Most likely, this device
resembles another one already in that list.

All is simple if the chip is a 82543GC and this is trivial to add; if the chip
is a 82542 then Intel needs to get involved for information.

Could you check which chip this board/device has ?

This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-08-23 17:47:44 EDT
This defect is *now* considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 2001-08-23 18:00:44 EDT
We are waiting for Intel
Comment 5 Michael K. Johnson 2001-08-23 18:58:43 EDT
We have a driver and permission to ship it, now we just need
to review and integrate (as long as we are satisfied, of
course) the driver.
Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-24 04:30:09 EDT
reviewed and integrated last night;
will get a kernel with it to Dell today
Comment 7 John A. Hull 2001-08-27 18:47:47 EDT
Installed on new 1500SC. Kudzu picked up and identified the LOM correctly and 
inserted the e1000 module.
