Description of problem:
Kudzu is assigning wrong device type and driver for this board

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put this ethernet board in your system
2. Boot and let kudzu detect it
3. Look bizarre things in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf and /etc/modules.conf

Actual Results:  In /etc/sysconfig/hwconf I found:
class: AUDIO
detached: 0
driver: cs4232
desc: "CS8920 Ethernet Adapter:Unknown"
deviceId: CSC6040
pdeviceId: CSC6040
native: 0
active: 0
cardnum: 0
logdev: 0
mem: 0x0,0x200

Doing 'cat /proc/isapnp' I got:
Card 1 'CSC6040:CS8920 Ethernet Adapter' PnP version 1.0 Product version 
  Logical device 0 'CSC6040:Unknown'
    Supported registers 0x2
    Device is not active
    Active memory ,0x200
    Resources 0
      Priority preferred
      Port 0x200-0x360, align 0xf, size 0x10, 16-bit address decoding
      IRQ 3,4,5,6,7,2/9,10,11,12,14,15 High-Edge

I don't have /etc/modules.conf anymore, but I remember kudzu wrote there 
wrong driver assosiations.

Expected Results:  This is a ISA ethernet card, and not a sound card. 
In /etc/sysconfig/hwconf we should expect this:
class: NETWORK
detached: 0
driver: cs89x0
desc: "CS8920 Ethernet Adapter:Unknown"

/lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/net/cs89x0.o is the correct driver 
for this board.

Additional info:

Anyway, this driver is not working well. The README files say you must 
boot with a DOS bootable disk with a Cirrus software, to configure this 
board in no-PnP mode.
After doing this, the driver still didn't worked for me.
Check http://www.cirrus.com/Drivers/ethernet/ethernet.cfm

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2002-01-04 03:20:13 UTC
The fix to not detect it as a sound card will be in kudzu-0.99.41-1.

As for automatically configuring it, kudzu won't do that until isapnp support is
added to the driver. Assigning to the kernel, as that's where that work would
have  to be (and also where bug reports about the driver not working would go.).

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
