Compaq Presario 920EA
-Realtek 8139 C+ Fast Ethernet NIC
-Toshiba SD R2312 DVD-ROM/CD-RW
Description of problem:
After managing to install and boot RH8.0 (see bug 80026), the ethernet
driver 8139too (auto detected) for the card mentioned about does not work.
If the eth0 is not started at boot, it can not be activated.
If the eth0 is activated at boot, ifconfig shows it working, but it
can not reach any other device except its own IP address. In this
case, I can not deactivate the device.
I've also tried the 8139 and 8129 driver modules.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Try to activate eth0 device
Last night I discover the following:
The ethernet card works until the KDE starts up!
Just after booting, from the X log in screen if I do a ctrl-alt-F1
and log in from the command line, the ethernet card, CD, and floppy
all work. Then, if I go back to X doing ctrl-alt-F7 and log in,
once I'm logged in, the ethernet card, CD, and floppy are all dead.
The KDE must be probing something that jams up the system.
I haven't had time to install and test Gnome (I didn't install it).
Gnome produces the problem.
I installed WindowMaker and it works fine. The ethernet card and CD
do not hang.
I'm willing to help debug this, but someone who knows about KDE has to
tell me how to disable functionalities to nail down the faulty component.
I don't know enough about how KDE works to do it alone.
