I have no solution. I reported the same problem on both the amd64-list
and fedora-list with subject 'ethernet failure after update to
kernel-2.6.10-1.766' (16 Feb). But nobody volunteerd a solution though one
other user confirmed seeing this.
Did you experience it immediately after the install with the 2.6.9
kernel or after updating to 2.6.10?
I was able to work for 2 months with the 2.6.9 kernel and updates
upto and including 2.6.10-1.760 without this occuring.
It started after update to 2.6.10-1.766 (immediately after rebooting)
and then also appeared with the older kernels. Sometimes it
disappeared for a couple of days before surfacing again.
(Luckily I have another inegrated ethernet adapter in the mobo that
works without problems).
Can anybody here can confirm wether this is a hardware problem or
a kernel/driver problem. In the latter case I will bugzilla it.
