Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2002-12-30 15:53:16 UTC
eth0: ICS LAN PHY transceiver found at address 0.
eth0: Using transceiver found at address 0 as default
eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0xe400, IRQ 11, 00:30:18:52:13:75.
[..]
eth0: Media Link On 100mbps full-duplex

(full standard install, DHCP, no firewall)

Initscripts can't bring up this interface properly, but fails, claiming "
failed; no link present.  Check cable?". It worked in RHL8, it works if you
manually do just "ifconfig eth0 up; dhclient eth0" as well placing the blame on
ifup (the "ip" commands run fine manually too...)
