Description dgilbert 2018-12-11 17:33:54 UTC
So... if I choose live CD and type "ifconfig em0 up" followed by "dhclient em0" ... everything works... but if I go through the install, select something that isn't on the media and continue, selecting em0 as my network, and ipv4->DHCP ... I see "sendmeg on em0: No buffer space available" ...

If I don't choose anything off-media, but still choose ipv4->DHCP->em0 later, It fails inconsequentially, and on reboot it still says "sendmsg on em0: No buffer space available" ... but then it succeeds later after loading uhid.ko (just giving that for ordering... uhid.ko isn't loaded for the livecd, I don't believe).

The machine is and HP Compaq 8100 Elite with an i5 660 and 4G RAM.
The em0 is on the motherboard and probes as:

em0: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection> port 0x3100-0x311f mem 0xf0400000-0xf041ffff,0xf0425000-0xf0425fff irq 19 at device 25.0 on pci0
