1) I'm having trouble with the sis900 chipset on an Acer Aspire 3000
Laptop using Fedora Core 4, which I believe uses 2.6.11. The NIC is
detected perfeclty by fedora but it fails to initialize. When I set it
for dhcp the dhcp request simply times out. I have tried this laptop
with ubuntu linux and it works perfectly out of the box so I cannot
explain why it wouldn't work in fedora.
Error: Determining IP information for eth0... failed. (redhat gui
Error: eth0: Transmit timeout, status 00000005 000002
3) dmesg: card is detected.
I am so very sorry I can't give you more output, but the laptop is
virtually connectionless. All I can tell you is that Ubuntu ran the card
fine but Fedora for some reason doesn't. Any info is highly appreciated.
