Description Avi Alkalay 2001-09-17 12:01:11 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 95)

Description of problem:
The "IBM|TR Auto LANstreamer" token-ring borad is not correctly being 
detected. Kudzu will not assign the correct driver.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put a Lanstreamer board in your system
2. Boot your machine to let '/etc/init.d/kudzu start' detect it
3. Look wrong driver assignemnts in /etc/modules.conf 
and /etc/sysconfig/hwconf

Actual Results:  Doing 'lspci -v' I got:
00:0b.0 Token ring network controller: IBM TR Auto LANstreamer (rev 02)
        Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 10
        I/O ports at 5000 [size=256]
        Memory at 60000800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
        Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled] [size=16K]

After running kudzu, I found the following in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf:

class: NETWORK
bus: PCI
detached: 0
device: tr
driver: tr
desc: "IBM|TR Auto LANstreamer"
vendorId: 1014
deviceId: 0018
subVendorId: 0000
subDeviceId: 0000
pciType: 1

And, in /etc/modules.conf, I found:
alias tr0 tr

Expected Results:  In /etc/sysconfig/hwconf, the correct result must be:
driver: lanstreamer

In /etc/modules.conf, must be:
alias tr0 lanstreamer

Additional info:

Anyway, the lanstreamer driver is buggy, and IBM already sent a fix to AC 
an Linus. I'll open a kernel bug report for this.

Driver mapping is fixed in current kudzu (0.99.23-1 or so.)
