Description josip 2007-07-14 00:09:06 UTC
Description of problem:
skge driver (Marvell 88E801 controller) mis-negotiates speed to Netgear GS605v2
GigE switch as only Fast Ethernet.  The switch supports jumbo frames but Fast
Ethernet doesn't, so mis-negotiated speed implies that MTU=9000 connection
fails.  Using "ethtool -s eth1 speed 1000" doesn't fix the problem.

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

How reproducible:
Use kernel-2.6.20-1.2962.fc6, Asus P5B Deluxe motherboard, eth1 interface with
Marvell 88E8001 GigE chip connected to NetGear GS605v2 GigE switch.  Reboot
machine -- it invariably negotiates 100 Mb/s instead of 1000 Mb/s.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
Actual results:
See above

Expected results:
See above

Additional info:

Comment 1 josip 2007-07-14 00:10:50 UTC
Physically disconnecting and reconnecting GigE multiple times can produce
negotiated 1000 Mb/s but this is a manual process not suitable for each reboot.

(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)


I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.

I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer

Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.

Thanks for using Fedora!

Comment 3 Jon Stanley 2008-02-08 04:27:40 UTC
Per the previous comment in this bug, I am closing it as INSUFFICIENT_DATA,
since no information has been lodged for over 30 days.

Please re-open this bug or file a new one if you can provide the requested data,
and thanks for filing the original report!
