    Seems to be gone but the rt kernel probably works just fine

    Plun,
    Thanks...I was just going to post that the rt kernel works.

    Code:
    ~$ uname -a
    Linux tikal 2.6.26-1-rt #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Fri Aug 29 12:39:10 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    
    ~$ dpkg -l | grep 2.6.26

    Crippled because of the blacklisting, or crippled because of the bug?

    If it because of the bug, it means that your ethernet firmware reads:
    ff ff ff ff ff ff

    And nothing will make that work again, aside from possibly a BIOS reflash, although that has mixed results: working vs bricking

    Scruffy, just blacklisting.

    According to the posts on LKML intel is working on a utility that will allow reflashing of eeproms.

    Guys, i think you need to reword the title of this thread, i read this as a bug causing corruption of network traffic on these cards & not as a possible eeprom getting flushed.

    I would replace corruption with bricking in the subject line.

    It does not "brick" the card. It only corrupts its NVRAM with invalid configuration options. I will reserve bricking as a term for actual irreversible firmware damage.

    The information on how to know if you're affected seems to be incomplete.

    My eth0 info is:

    Code:
    driver: e100
    version: 3.5.23-k4-NAPI
    firmware-version: N/A
    bus-info: 0000:08:08.0
    Am I affected or does the "driver" field actually spell "e1000e" on those cards?

    I don't think so. It appears so far to only affect the Intel Gigabit cards that use the e1000e driver. What you have is not a Gigabit card. The Gigabit cards will say e1000e for the driver.

    Thanks for the detailed helps.
    I have kernel 2.6.27-2, am I affected? I dont currently use this card, so there is no way for me to know. I've just backup the eeprom, and it reads like this:

    2.6.27-2 boots and runs with ethernet working, for me. 2.6.27-4 has the module blacklisted -- no networking.
