I swear I had this working before. I may have messed something up in
the BIOS, but the only thing I know I did since this was working was
boot an Fedora 7 Live CD on the computer. Now Ethernet is broken...
I've got a VIA EPIA EN15000G with a VT612x gigE ethernet chip.
I'm running CURRENT from 2007-06-<mumble>. The ethernet used to work,
but now on boot I get output like this:
vge0 at pci0 dev 14 function 0: VIA VT612X Gigabit Ethernet (rev. 0x11)
vge0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 18 (irq 10)
vge0: Ethernet address: 73:fa:73:fa:73:fa
vge0: MII read timed out
vge0: failed to start MII autopoll
scanpci output has:
pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x0e function 0x00: vendor 0x1106 device 0x3119
VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6120/VT6121/VT6122 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
ifconfig output gives:
vge0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
In the BIOS I've got APIC Enabled, and Plug & Play disabled (though I
had the problem with it enabled as well). I'm on the latest bios rev. 1.07.
