RE: Netra X1 install problem/oddity

Title: RE: Netra X1 install problem/oddity
Thanks for the follow up on this.  I did the echo trick but it still didn't work.  I also did remove dmfe.ko and then issue depmod -a to rebuild the catalog but it still loads the module.  It seems like this module is in the kernel or something.  Anyway, I'll play around with it a little more.  In a worse case scenario, I'll script something on startup.

I've still got a few Netra X1's running.
From my notes:

First thing after booting the tftpimage jump to a shell and:

modprobe -r dmfe
modprobe -r tulip
modprobe tulip

Then you can continue the install.

After it reboots to the new system:

echo 'blacklist dmfe' > /etc/modprobe.d/dmfe-blacklist

If all else fails you could track down and delete dmfe.ko but you'd have
to remember to do that after every kernel upgrade. The above method worked
fine on my production boxes.
