SubjectWeird HWaddr with rtl 8139too since 8129 merge?
From
Hi 

I just compiled the 2.4.4 release with gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (Debian release).
After starting up both realtek 8139 network cards (ok they where cheap) won't work.
The source of the problem seems to be the hwaddr of the cards (ifconfig output):
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
inet addr:192.168.1.1 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0xe000

eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:4294967293 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:4 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0xe800
When booting 2.4.2-ac20 both cards work fine. I looked a bit into the source of the driver, but
there where tons of changes obviusly because of the merge of the 8129 Support, so i didn't look
into this further.

I'll append lspci to give an overview of installed hardware.

Thanks for any help
Tim
