Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 62256
neat not very useful for laptops
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:01 EDT
Description of Problem:
'neat' does not seem to be a very useful tool for configuring networking
on a laptop with pccard ethernet.
1) the "ethernet" card is not recognized as such (the name does not
appear under 'Hardware')
2) using the 'Add' button is not a useful option because no pccard ethernet
adapters seem to be named in the list. (insofar as they do not conform
to a standard 'chip').
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
which pcmcia network card do you have and which driver does it load?
I have noticed this on a Dell i7000 with a Dynalink L10C pcmcia card with
driver 'pcnet_cs' (skipjack with redhat-config-network-0.9.18-1).
[in /var/log/messages kernel additionaly reports "NE2000 compatible"]
I also see this on a Dell i8100 with an Intel (Etherexpress) PRO/100 pcmcia card
with driver 'xirc2ps_cs' (enigma with redhat-config-network-0.9.10-2).
[in /var/log/messages kernel additionaly reports only "Intel"]
xirc2ps_cs should work with kernel-2.4.18-0.13
pcnet_cs i have to add
