Networking never works on your iMac? Okay, let's presume DHCP is
borked,
can you set everything static based and see it work?

If DHCP is failing, please file a bug report, and also provide the
relevant tcpdump output. Some odd regression possibly, because I faced
this during some early FC2 rawhide testing, but it was fixed

Not using dhcp - using a static IP on my lan.
Network init script says it was starting, but eth0 was never brought up.
It's possible that the network (ifcfg-eth0) setting set up by YDL were not sufficient for FC - I tried manually adjusting ifcfg-eth0 to look similar to the ifcfg-eth0 on an x86 FC3 box, but that didn't work - even when I tried modprobing various modules I thought might be responsible. I also tried running the network config tool - it didn't recognize eth0. I suspect it may be fixed by a newer kernel, but there were deps not installed when I tried to install it - I really need to get one of those USB keychain thingies, but I don't have one.


I tried modprobing mace, sungem, a few others that looked reasonable (I believe mace is the correct one) - but the installed kernel is kind of old (from C3T2). I want to try with a newer kernel before I file any bug reports. I also want to pick up a USB key before I file a bug report, to make it easier to try different kernels.

While I highly doubt this has anything to do with it, this is a first gen iMac but it has a Newer 433 G4 cpu daughtercard installed (opposed to the 233 G3 it came with) - It's the second rev of the mobo (the one used for Rev B/C/D iMacs)
