[Xen-users] Dom0 eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring


I'm a newbie to Xen and I need some help. I saw user 'datto' had a similar problem but changed to FC4 to resolve it.

I'm currently running FC3 and Xen2.0.7. I did the usual 'make install' and I can boot into Xen dom0. However, my network card is not working. The driver is found in the linux- tree but not selected. I rebuilt the kernel by compiling the Marvel Yukon/SysKonnect SK98xx driver both in the kernel and as a module but to no avail.

So the error message I have is
"Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring."

If I remove the MAC address completely either using the GUI or under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and /etc/sysconfig/networking/ifcfg-eth0 (HWADDR), and I try to re-activate the network card, I get the message "sk98lin device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization."

I also tried using a MAC like AA:00:00:0E:1A:DF but still have the same "different MAC" message.

I don't think it's a driver problem since the kernel has the driver listed in the .config file. Any help would be most appreciated.
