Description Don Russell 2005-04-17 05:48:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
I upgraded my FC3 system to FC4 T2 from DVD. The upgrade went well, but when completed I could not get eth0 started.

I then did a clean install of FC4 T2 and tried again.. same result.

Not being able to get any network connection going, I re-installed FC3...

From FC3... /sbin/lspci shows (ethernet related):

02:01.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4 T2
2. Reboot after install
3. Watch for messages about starting eth0

Actual Results:  got message 
starting eth0 [FAILED]

Expected Results:  eth0 shuld have started with no problems, it works with FC3

Additional info:

The ethernet controller on this machine is (from FC3)
/sbin/lspci shows (ethernet related):

02:01.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)

Machine is Toshiba laptop Satellite 1115-S103

I'm using high severity because the system is practically unusable without a network.

I asked questions in the test mail list before creating this bug report:

Comment 3 Don Russell 2005-05-17 03:28:09 UTC
FYI - I upgraded FC3 to FC4T3 and had no problems with the network. So, this
appears to have been fixed since FC4T2.
