Update: Still have no idea if MythTV is releated to Via GbE problem, 0.32, or general linux issue. I downloaded the latest driver from via and compiled/installed it (after I d/l'd the pluto kernel source). No change. GbE still not working.
ifconfig shows ip assigned to the GbE as 192.168.80.1, tx a few KB, rx=0. The light on my switch never toggles. I can't ping it from a different machine, although I can from the core/hybrid's console.
I know the via GbE works, as I reserved a partition for windows on the machine (after the first several installs failed prior to installing old 10/100 as second network), loaded Win2K, and all of my hardware works fine.
Hints on MythTV or this problem?
