Re: [K12OSN] Woe is me: Onboard SCSI/RAID Controller



Hi Robert,

I have installed 4.0.1 now. You said it had fedora core 1 and the correct drivers and you were right, it all works. Plus I've booted a client off it and I'm happy about that.

I did 'ifconfig' and it brought up eth0 and loopback but no eth1.
Then i tried 'lspci' and it brought up a whole heap of stuff that I can't make sense of.


In Hardware browser under network devices it just lists the gigabit ethernet, nothing else.

In the G700 handbook the diagrams show one RDM LAN port (10mbps) and one Gigabit LAN port (10/100/1000 Mbps)... eth1 is supposed to be 10/100 isn't it not just 10? So is that where the problem lies? Not impressed with G700 if that's the case - I asked for a server with two nics ready to go...

Do I have to install another network card into the server to get my eth1?

Thanks,

Debbie
