Description of problem:
The network card (identified as a "RTL-8139 (rev 16)") is detected as a
8139too (which is right). The modules gets insmodded correctly, and
"ifconfig eth0" shows the right information. We can mount the card in
static IP mode. ifconfig shows that the card transmits packets but receives
none. The firewall is not the cause, nor is the routing.
In the past (redhat 7.1), we have been using 8139too_old instead of 8139too
because we were experiencing this exact problem. However, 7.2 has dumped
8139too_old. Since RedHat had included 8139too_old in the past, they must
have been aware of some problems with 8139too. Are those problems fixed?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ifup eth0 (which is a 8139too)
2. ssh <whatever ip>
Actual Results: Doesn't work. The interface sends packets, but doesn't
Expected Results: Connection.
Sorry, problem was due to stupidity. ;)
