From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9 i686)

Description of problem:
I made an update installation from RH 7.1 to roswell. MY 7.1 system was
installed with a running network access (3c59x, Kernel 2.4.9). But after
roswell was installed, the network access failed ("Cannot send dump

Kernel with "NETLINK=Y" and "RTNETLINK=Y". Then roswell will run without

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
see above.

Actual Results:  No network access possible.

Expected Results:  Network reachable.

Yes Netlink is required basically to do any real networking; 
David Miller has said that he wants these config options removed and default to
enabled in the TCP/IP stack because the code overhead is low and all non-trivial
network setups require this.

I'd say this is not a real bug; more that 2.4.9 doesn't have the default set
