Problem: 2.6.x and network (e1000 Intel 82546EB)
after installing a fresh sarge on a Sun (dual XEON) with two
e1000 Intel 82546EB Gigabit Ethernet Controller everything
worked fine so far with the default 2.4.x kernel. But after
changing to 2.6.x the network just does not work anymore. I
use e1000 as the driver and the official kernel images
(kernel-image-2.6.-1-686-smp. Of course, I looked in
/var/log/* for interesting messages, but got nothing out of
it. rmmod e1000; modprobe e1000; /etc/init.d/networking
restart gave "Ignoring unknown interface eth0=hotplug" and
"Ignoring unknown interface eth1=hotplug". Hotplug?
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
