Description of problem:
onboard SiS900 ethernet no longer works. It worked in 7.x and 8.0. Not sure
what the problem is. The /etc/modules.conf has it in there:
"alias eth0 sis900" and the module is loaded:
Module Size Used by Not tainted
sis900 16492 0
At boot time get an error message about "failed: no link present. Check
cable?"... and yes, I've checked the cable... works fine on reboot into Windows
and worked fine on previous RHL installs.
The phoebe install was a fresh install (did NOT upgrade) and I haven't done any
messing around to break it (nor to fix it).
Bus 0, device 1, function1:
Ethernet controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS900 10/100 Ethernet
Master Capable. Latency=64. Min Gnt=52. Max Lat=11
I/O at 0xcc00 [0xccff].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xcfffb000 [0xcfffbfff].
/proc/pci also shows a SiS 56k Winmodem (Smart Link HAMR5600 compatible) (rev1
60) also on IRQ 12.
Repeated attempts to "service network restart" result in same error (failed: no
link present. Check cable?").
Not sure where to go from here. Suggestions?!?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try Booting System
2. Seems to initialize device but can't obtain an address
3. Worked fine in previous RHL versions
