driver-modul e100 intel etherexpress 100



hi,

are there known problems in severn with the
   e100
   intel-etherexpress 100 modul

i was trying now for 2 days to bring one of my severn into the lan.

i was not able to do a net-install wih the severn boot-disk,
tested once again with the rhl 9 boot-disk and the e100 on the same maschine, no problems.


ok,
burning the severn cd #1, minimal english install

the e100 will be recognized and configured by kudzu

but ...

ifconfig = ok
lsmod = ok
modules.conf = ok
net-config = ok
no firewall = ok
# rpm -e iptables lokkit
tcpdump = nothing seems to go out only come in
route = ok ? 169.254.0.0 ??
 added
   /etc/syscongig/network
   NOZEROCONF=1
route = ok

rebooted, 1000 x
network restarted, 100000 x

removed the nic, rebooted,  10 x
add the nic, rebooted, new config,  10 x

always the same
there is a link but nothing goes out


searched the old hdd with, rhl 7.2, rhl 8.0, win98, win2k, netware5 -> no problems, the intel works propper


replaced the intel with an old realtek 10baseT alias eth0 ne2k-pci 1 minute later, the severn is in the lan :-)
