|| ||[opensuse-announce] Serious e1000e Driver Issue in SLE 11 Beta 1 and openSUSE 11.1 Beta 1|
|| ||Mon, 22 Sep 2008 15:49:47 -0400|
We have an important announcement regarding openSUSE 11.1 beta 1 and
SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 beta 1:
The Intel e1000e driver on openSUSE 11.1 Beta 1 and SUSE Linux
Enterprise 11 Beta 1 might have a serious issue with the potential to
damage the network card in a way that it cannot be used any longer.
Intel and Novell are currently working to analyze and solve the issue.
For the time being:
Please do NOT USE:
openSUSE 11.1 Beta 1
SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Beta 1
on systems with Intel e1000e hardware.
Any other hardware, including systems with Intel e1000 (without -e)
network cards, is not affected by this issue.
We will keep you posted. Please watch news.opensuse.org and the
opensuse-announce mailing list for more information.
