  1. Bug#474456: ethernet broken on a epox 8hda series motherboard from 2.6.23 onwards

    Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-amd64
    Version: 2.6.24-5
    Severity: important

    With 2.6.23 and 2.6.24 the onboard ethernet on my brothers desktop PC no
    longer works. The system announces the link is up then soon afterwards
    announces a timeout then announces it is up again and the process
    repeats endlessly.

    The network situation is bad enough that the system is unable to pick up
    it's IP by DHCP, I don't know if any packets are getting out at all but
    I suspect not.

    The machine is connected to a 10 megabit hub

    LSPCI has the following to say about the controller
    00:0d.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)

    The motherboard manual claims it is an epox 8HDA series board, I haven't
    taken the lid off to find out exactly which model.

    With 2.6.22 the network works fine

    Peter, is this bug still reproducible with 2.6.26 from Lenny?

    Cheers,

    earlier in the bug report.

    Can you please report it upstream at bugzilla.kernel.org and add
    the bug number to the bug log?

    Cheers,
