bootnet install hangs (natsemi driver problem?)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:33 EDT
Description of Problem:
Doing an nfs install hangs if NIC driver needed by "dd" not specified
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
everytime I tried
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot bootnet floppy
2. have a NIC which needs drivers disk but don't specify dd
install hangs when to tries to get anaconda
error message about missing driver
better still, prompt for driver disk
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
Netgear card with National Semiconductor Corporation DP83815 (MacPhyter)
Ethernet Controller (natsemi driver).
This is on the driver disk.
natsemi should be on bootnet as of RC1. What is this card's pci id?
OK, I knew I should of attached lpci for this and was just lazy.

I believe that it will happen with any system with a NIC that needs the driver
But natsemi's not on the driver disk for rc1... trying to find the card which
is floating around the office here to take a better look at it.
If you're saying this happens with "any" -- do you have any other examples?
okay, natsemi seems to be kind of busted for me too... reassigning to kernel
Natsemi driver reverted to the 7.1 one; that should fix all these issues.
