Re: re driver woes

    Were you using ACPI before?  If not then try booting 1.0 with ACPI
    turned off (option 2 on the boot menu) and see if the re card works.

    I don't think we even *had* an re driver prior to July 7th. Joerg
    imported it from FreeBSD.    If that's the case, then there could very
    well be issues with it.

:I recently reinstalled dfly using the 1.0 Release ISO. I have not yet
:updated or rebuilt my kernel using latest sources.
:Originally when I tried out the re driver it worked great and without any
:However, since 1.0 Release I have been unable to use the driver.
:Here are the problems summarized:
:1) driver takes a long time to recognize that a cable is plugged in
:2) driver after loading and attempting a dhclient on re0 causes livelock
:warnings to go crazy causing me to have to hard reboot the system since it
:becomes unresponsive
:I don't know why it suddenly doesn't work anymore, but thanks for any
:assistance in this matter. In the meantime I have placed a 3COM network
:card in the box that works fine (3c90x).
