Description of problem:
The standard Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS Developer Edition lacks support for
Dell OptiPlex GX260 NIC (e1000 module kernel module). This seems to be due to
old kernel version (works on Red Hat 8 and Red Hat 9 out of the box).


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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get Dell OptiPlex GX260
2. Get Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS Developer Edition
3. Install the RH EL AS DE
4. Network does not work (e1000 module problem)
5. Check Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS Developer Edition (v. 2.1)  update channel 
6. No updates available.

    

Actual Results:  No updates available

Expected Results:  Updated kernel package available

the DE edition comes with no support or updates whatsoever :(......
Comment 2 Ari Inki 2003-05-26 08:24:55 EDT
This is a bit odd, as one is supposed to develop / test / certify for the red
hat ready program by utilizing the Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS Developer Edition.

What is the proposed workaround for the problem mentioned?
Comment 3 Ari Inki 2003-05-26 08:26:21 EDT
Is there a list of hardware certified for Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS Developer
Edition (known to work list)?
