[realtek-bug] Complement to "Host Unreachable"
Thu, 5 Oct 2000 21:57:19 +0000
After some more tests, it turns out that, under RedHat 7.0, the connexion
can be established correctly to other PCs on a LAN through ND012 card
(with rtl8138 chipset), provided the second card (with chip rtl8029) is
desactivated. On the other hand:
- under Windows 98, it is not necessary to desactivate the second card.
- under Linux RH7.0, when the connexion to the LAN is established
through the card with rtl8029 chip, the other card ND012 needs not be
It would thus seem that, with the Linux driver of cards with rtl8139 chip,
the cohabitation with other cards is impossible (I checked the problem
exists also with another type of card, 3C503).
Is it a bug or a limitation of the driver, or is there an option I did not
find out, and that the Kudzu hardware installer of RH7.0 is not aware of
(as it did not add any option)?
Thank you very much in advance for any explanations.
