Description Jan Iven 2003-01-15 06:00:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
On Serverworks OSB4 MB, integrated network interface, anaconda tries to use the
e100 driver. This fails (separate bug), a manually-chosen eepro100 works fine. 
Anaconda does not remember this manual choice, so after the installation the
machine still tries to use e100 for the interface.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install on this machine, using pxeboot/initrd.img through GRUB on local disk
2. watch it try to use e100, fail, pop up dialog asking for new driver
3. select eepro100 driver, continue installation

Actual Results:  $ cat /etc/module.conf
eth0    e100

Expected Results:  $ cat /etc/module.conf
eth0     eepro100

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
