Description Pekka Savola 2002-05-23 04:16:46 EDT
Becker has about a dozen or so diagnostic utils of the form '<driver>-diag' on
his FTP site.
Older versions of these have been packaged as 'ether-diag' package.  I've
written a man page
for 'mii-diag' utility.

Kernel-utils has only eepro100-diag.  This conflicts with a (third-party)
diag-ether package.

I think that either:
 1) kernel-utils should include all diagnostic utils from Becker's site
 2) kernel-utils should have no diag utils like eepro100-diag, but instead you
ship with
a package like diag-ether which contains *all* of them.

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/
