You need to list the hardware because it is very likely a device driver issue.
Comment 2 Ray Lee 2007-12-14 23:04:01 UTC
Don't think it's a hardware issue, as I can't even get any packets printed on loopback (`tshark -i lo & ping &` shows nothing).

Regardless: broadcom wireless (bcm43xx), tg3 wired, on x86-64.

Another person tried -rc5 is fine for them, so likely this is either something that's fixed already, or perhaps my make oldconfig disabled something necessary? No clue.

Will re-test current git head (-rc5) in the morning and report.

Comment 3 Ray Lee 2007-12-15 00:11:02 UTC
Okay, -rc5 works great. I have no idea what changed between -rc3 and -rc5, or whether it was a .config change (the diff doesn't show much interesting for .config between the two).

Really not sure why -rc3 isn't working for me, but I guess it really doesn't matter. Sorry for the false alarm.
