Description Jesse Keating 2002-10-01 01:43:51 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
My Intel Pro 100 NIC is not detected during install.  This causes some
interesting problems for firstboot (trying to register with RHN).  Once Red Hat
8.0 was installed, and even rebooted a few times, a manual run of "kudzu"
detected the eepro100.  Before running kduzu, I was able to modprobe eepro100
and configure my network.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot from Red Hat Linux 8.0 CD 1
2.  Install Red Hat Linux 8.0
3.  
	

Actual Results:  eepro100 is not detected, I'm never presented with options to
configure my network, no network when Red Hat Linux 8.0 is booted.

Expected Results:  NIC detected, allowed to configure, used upon boot.

Additional info:

This could be because I have my PC bios set for "pnp OS=yes".  The mainboard is
an Asus A7m266, the CPU is an Athlon T-Bird 1.33ghz/266fsb.
Comment 1 Ali-Reza Anghaie 2002-10-01 07:06:55 EDT
My 'eepro100' was detected properly on boot. What can I provide that might 
help determine the differences? Unless it was an anomoly or what-not. Cheers, 
-Ali
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-01 16:18:12 EDT
Could you attach the output from lspci?

Also could you attach /etc/sysconfig/hwconf on the system which the network card
works?

Comment 5 Ali-Reza Anghaie 2002-10-01 16:24:44 EDT
Attached w/ data from a lappy that uses the eepro100 drivers. I'll attach from 
the desktop that it all worked fine from (w/ eepro100) as well as soon as I'm 
done re-installing (test box for other things). Cheers, -Ali

Thanks I'll forward this to the hw database owner.
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2002-10-24 14:56:40 EDT
That's already in the DB; there's really no reason it shouldn't be detected. Can
you post the output of lspci -v?

lspci -v of the box where eepro100 and emu10k1 were not detected until probed.
Comment 10 Bill Nottingham 2002-10-24 15:25:51 EDT
Is this lspci from before or after the modules were probed and loaded?
Comment 11 Jesse Keating 2002-10-24 15:46:35 EDT
This is after.  After I modprobed emu10k1 and eepro100, then I ran kudzu and
kudzu picked them up.  Want me to rmmod those 2 modules and lspci -v again?
Comment 12 Bill Nottingham 2002-10-24 16:13:43 EDT
Hm, an lspci of a fresh bootup without them ever loaded would be best.
Comment 13 Jesse Keating 2003-11-11 17:16:24 EST
So far this has been unreproducable for me.  Strange.  Closing bug.
