[please Cc me when you reply. I'm not on the list]
I have recently purchased this machine with the
ASUS P4P800-VM with onboard NIC (fxp0)
1 GB RAM
Intel 10/100B NIC
I've installed 4.9-prerelease on the box [last cvsup
Basically, when I boot the box from home , I get this
error saying: "syslogd: no address assoicated with
hostname" but then everything else seems to be
okay, including the networking on both NICs...etc.
The strange problem is that if I move the machine
to the colo, the onboard NIC would not work and I
saw this in dmesg: "fxp0: MII without any PHY"
and the fxp1 was not even detected. syslogd would
either core dump or gave the same error as the above.
But as soon as I move the machine back, everything
started to work okay except syslogd error message
still would appear
Any hints? Likely a hardware issue or 4.9 pre release
issue or something funny with the power provided
by the colo?
