Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 61337
tulip driver still does not send any packets

Description of Problem:
'pcitable' for kudzu and on a ram disk say:
0x1011 0x0019 "tulip" "DEC|DECchip 21142/43"
I happen to have a chip with this PCI id in my test machine and current
tulip drivers _do not work_ with it (as reported already a number of times).
Actually it is even worse. A module will load and an interface will start
but not a single packet will go through in either direction. If this
interface will be configured for DHCP then on a startup it will wait
patiently for a response which will never come.
There were times when 'tulip', before it got "improved", worked fine with
this card but not for quite a while. Current 'de4x5' driver does work
in that sense that an interface not only goes up but one can even send
some traffic through it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current 7.2 release
