Description Sarantis Paskalis 2001-08-24 15:03:22 UTC
Description of Problem: My NIC, a eepro100 stopped working with the 2.4.7-2
kernel.  It worked fine with all the previous kernels including the
previous Roswell kernel (2.4.6-3.1 if I remember correctly).

I had a similar experience with Debian's 2.4.7 kernel, so I tend to blame
2.4.7 for the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.4.7-2

How Reproducible: every time

Steps to Reproduce: 
1.install 2.4.7 kernel
2.use eepro100 module for the NIC
3.it does not receive any packets from the network

Actual Results:

The ifup command brings the eth0 interface up, and shows that packets are
actually transmitted (the TX number is increasing).  No packets are ever
received, according to ifconfig status (which btw. causes long delays in
the sendmail startup).

Expected Results:

Additional Information:

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-08-24 15:54:34 UTC
We (Red Hat) should try to fix this before next release.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-27 11:21:51 UTC
kernel-2.4.7-2.9 seems to have fixed the eepro100 problem.  Thanks.
