can't perform network install
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:07:31 EDT
Description of Problem:
system has realtek 8029 nic on PCI, which worked fine in red hat 6.0.
Booted with bootnet.img and tried to perform a HTTP install. I'm asked what
driver to choose and selected RTL 8129too. Next step askes again what kind of
network install to perform ( HTTP, FTP, NFS ).
Alt+F2 shows the rtl8129.o module can't be loaded ( possible by irq conflicts ).
Booted in red hat 6.0, saw it's irq and i/o address from /proc/pci, and tried to
install again by passing these options as
Tried with additional drivers disk, the other RTL card ( cp ), and NE2000 (with
and without module options), the same. Tried another rtl 8029 nic, the same.
I've finally installed from hdd, and I was asked during install the IP of the
host, and all networking worked fine from the start.
PS: on downloaded isos I checked md5sum
I've just installed redhat 7.3 on the same system by http and it works, so the
problem is new in red hat 8.0
The correct driver for the Realtek 8029 is ne2k-pci, and it does not require any
module options. Can you re-test with this driver to ensure you can reproduce
the bad behavior?
It works with PCI NE2000. Sorry for the bogus report.
