Description of problem:
8139too module fails to load during Anaconda on the Compaq Presario 900US.
Debug messages from ALT-F4 are below.
This is the same laptop as Bug 72387.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat beta Null
This is the relevant portion of the messages from ALT-F4 during Anaconda.
<6>8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.25
<6>8139too: pci dev 00:0b.0 (id 10ec:8139 rev ff) is an enhanced 8139C+ chip
<6>8139too: Use the "8139cp" driver for improved performance and stability.
<6>PCI: Assigned IRQ 11 for device 00:0b.0
<3>8139too: 00:0b.0: Chip not responding, ignoring board
'Fixed' with a hack to kudzu to recognize those cards. Should be in 0.99.67-1.
I am unable to boot normally on this laptop to test 8139cp, but when I boot with
"pci=conf2" it seems unable to use 8139cp module. Is this normal?
(This is with kernel-2.4.20-pre-4-ac1.)
pci=conf2 is only supported by some very old mostly 486 chipsets
pci=conf1 is used by all modern systems
