Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 69813
Cannot NFS install with Intel 82545 onboard NIC
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:52 EDT
Description of Problem:
The onboard gigabit NIC (Intel 82545) on this Tyan S2707-based system is
not recognised during the RH73 install. Therefore I cannot install the OS
via NFS. The device ID is 8086:100f (rev. 01).
The e1000 driver included in the RH73 install (4.1.7) does not support the
82545, but the new Intel driver (4.3.2) does.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
No option for NFS install
Option for NFS install
Arjan -- is the ethernet on the i845 boards supported with the 7.3 kernel?
no, the driver Intel made us ship probably doesn't support it
Ok assigning to kernel so when we are allowed to ship a working driver this
issue can be closed.
the rawhide kernel has support for this, as does the limbo beta
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
