Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53566
run eepro100-diag -f -G -w -w -w to clear sleep bit
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:23:28 EDT
Description of Problem:
The Intel 82559 NIC onboard the Intel "Lion" (and maybe the "BigSur") IA-
64 platforms have a buggy eeprom which enables "sleep mode". Intel
proposes disabling sleep mode via the e100 driver. Instead, I propose
that anaconda always run eepro100-diag -f -G -w -w -w from Donald
Becker's site to deal with this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Doesn't really belong in anaconda -- consider the situation where you install to
a hard drive and move the hard drive to a different machine.
Fixed in 0.99.24-1.
Fixed *correctly* in 0.99.25-1; the previous fix would only work on cards not
configured by the instaler.
