I had to replace a disk (the one with all of the home directories on
it) on an FC3 box, and so I bought a new drive (particulars unimportant).
To make a long story short, I decided to put FC4 on this box, and so I
installed the new drive and put the root filesystem on it. I still
have the old FC3 root drive and can boot to either for comparison...
Under FC3, I have no network problems that I can detect; however,
under FC4 there are two distinct (related? no idea) problems which
have eluded me. I have tried looking up both of these in the
archives, but have had no luck (some similar issues, but nothing
exactly like either of these unless I missed them).
Problem 1: network card goes to sleep.
This machine has 2 network cards, both on-board. The 1GB card L(Intel
82540EM) goes to the smartswitch to tolk to the local network, and
does not show any problems.
The other card (nVidia nForce2) is a 100MB card and talks to the DSL
modem. Periodically I cannot connect to the internet at all - or even
ping the DSL modem. This happens irregularly but about 5-10
times/day. If I reboot back to FC3, the problem does not occur.
Network configurations between the two (FC3/FC4) are as identical as I
can make them. The first few times the problem occurs, sometimes
retarting networking works, but eventually a full sys reboot is the
only thing which works.
Problem 2: slow local network.
Under FC3 throughput on the LOCAL network (1GB lan) is very fast.
Under FC4, the best I have seen is ONE transfer of about 1.2 MB/s -
and throughput drops to as low as 50-75KB/s at times. Again, this
does not occur under FC3 but does under FC4. Again the same setup as
nearly as I can make it. No workaround found so far.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Question is asked in Feb 2006 ...!!!!!!!!!! :-)
