Description pberge 1999-08-30 22:55:02 UTC
in /etc/conf.modules

netcfg put "ne io=0x300" and "ne io=0x240" .... The second
one replaces the
first so the first ethernet card is not found.  netcfg
should use "ne io=0x300,0x240".

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-09-20 17:30:59 UTC
netcfg never writes to /etc/conf.modules.
Perhaps you were using linuxconf?

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-22 18:47:59 UTC
I think that "netcfg" was a typo for "netconf" which is part of linuxconf.
I've since heard of this bug in linuxconf from other folks.

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-02 17:38:59 UTC
This should be fixed in linuxconf-1.16r10-1 (or later) that we will release
as an errata update after testing.

Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-15 20:58:59 UTC
1.16r10-2 released
