System description

OS : Redhat 6.1 (kernel 2.2.12-42)
Sys : Sun Sparc Station 20
Disk : Seagate 1GB
Ram : 32 MB
Video : Turbo GX

Load the quad-ethernet driver "sunqe.o" causes the system to directly exit
to the sun boot prompt (eg. ok <cursor>) !! This ALWAYS happens when
detecting the Sun QE card.
1) Durng the installation, either normal or expert (added driver).
2) loading the module in a running system, or configured to use the module
at boot time.
3) booting from a monolithic kernel with built-in support for the sun QE.

I also tried the latest stable kernel 2.2.14 -> same problem.

This worked fine in RH 5.1 sparc.

Please help,
Thanks in advance

Will fix this for 6.2

Comment 2 David Miller 2000-03-06 12:05:59 UTC
Red Hat 6.2, and Alan's final 2.2.15 kernel release
will have this fixed.
