Description William Shotts 2001-08-29 20:47:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010801

Description of problem:
Using the network configuration tool to configure a ne2000 ethernet card
fails to write the proper values in the /etc/modules.conf file for the driver.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install roswell (ne2000 is not detected during install)
2. Run gnome
3. Run network configuration tool (not wizard)
4. Configure ne2000 device as eth0
5. Quit
6. Reboot


Actual Results:  eth0 fails to come up.  lsmod reveals that ne module has
not been loaded.  Examination of /etc/modules.conf shows that the module
has been configured so:

options eth0 io=0x320 irq=5
alias eth0 ne 

Expected Results:  eth0 should come up.

Additional info:

Changing modules.conf to:

alias eth0 ne
options ne io=0x320

corrects problem.

Thanks for reporting.

A fix is already in CVS, a new version should appear shortly on rawhide.

Read ya, Phil
