Description Peter Fales 2002-08-05 18:09:56 UTC
Is there any reason why the arcnet modules (arcnet, rcf1201,
com20020, com90xx) couldn't be built as part of the standard 
kernel?  I realize that not to many people use this hardware, 
but there are a few of us, and it would be very helpful.  This
is the main reason why I have to build a new kernel every time
a new RedHat release comes out.  The modules are all pretty small, 
so there shouldn't be much overhead in including them.

Here's another vote for this.  I was about to file a similar request until
I saw that someone beat me to it.  Like the originator, I was going to note
that this should add very little overhead, and would be very helpful
to those of us using arcnet.

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/
