Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.only sees 3c905C-TX/TX-M not D-Link System Inc RTL8139
Actual Results: no entry in /etc/module.conf for RTL8139
"alias eth1 8139too"
no /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 startup script
Expected Results: be able to config the D-Link System Inc RTL8139 on install
Needed to run /usr/sbin/redhat-config-network-gui
and manually install ... BTW needed to select:
RealTek RTL-8139, SMC EZ Card
from the menu ... not very obvious.
Can you provide `/sbin/lspci -n` as well?
# /sbin/lspci -n

Bill, do you have any ideas on why this wouldn't be found?
Nope. It's in the pcitable.
I had a previous redhat 8.0 installation on this box. Anaconda detected this
but I didn't do an upgrade. I did a full reformat/install. Does it care about
the ethernet setup of a previous installation at all?
BTW it worked fine on redhat 8.0
I do not have the exact hardware listed above, but I have similar hardware that
uses the same drivers. I am so far unable to replicate this bug.
How did you boot the installer (e.g. bootdisk.img, boot.iso, cd), and what
installation method did you use (e.g. cd, nfs, ftp, http, hd)?
Did you use any driver disks, and if so which ones?
Just the phoebe 3 iso image. Boot from CDROM. I'm sure the media is ok (I've
used on a couple of other systems).
If you want some diagnosics I can give it another shot (when I boot the CDROM it
doesn't list this NIC).
BTW in the existing install this NIC is not brought up on boot as I use it for
testing purposes (I bring it up manually when I do testing). That's why I asked
above if anaconda cares about the config of the existing install.
Is the final Red Hat Linux 9 / the current Severn beta any better?
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you have any further information to
