i`ve been trying a couple of FC1 distro`s ( namely Blag 10000 and cobind) but i cant connect to my cable modem through my nic (3com3590)..card is recognised but dhcp fails. whats changed in networking since RH9? everything works fine with blag 9002.

I've had the same problem also with 3com(3c905) nic. Only with Fedora based distros, the nic will not work.

Any ideas/suggestions if Blag will work?

tofu, sry I missed this first time around...

Did it majickally fix itself, by any chance? Sometimes you have to power-cycle your cable modem to have it assign another address....

If you could give me an actual error or something, that would be cool.

Also try running:
/sbin/mii-tool eth0

to see if the card is seeing that it is connected to the hub/switch/modem.

Bugzilla may have some info for you:

Some confusion in the bug report about whether it's a 509 or 905 though. ;)

This may help (run as root):

/sbin/chkconfig --del kudzu

kudzu is the thing that says "Detecting new hardware..." or somesuch. It takes effect after reboot.

To re-enable:

/sbin/chkconfig --add kudzu

Also, it may be that the module isn't loading. Try this (as root):

/sbin/modprobe 3c509
/sbin/service network restart

You may need to run `redhat-config-network` to set up dhcp if it isn't already.

Lemme know how it goes, and error reports are helpful.


P.S. All of the redhat-config-* programs are renamed system-config-* in FC2/BLAG20000.

E-mail me at s.clement@localhost (replace localhost with sympatico.ca) or stevo32@localhost (replace localhost with blagblagblag.org).
