I have tried to search for this on this mailing list however haven't had any luck with a solution.

The problem basically is as follows:

WoodCrest 5150
Intel s5000xvn Motherboard
4GB Ram

Now when i run centos 4.4 kernel, the onboard 2 Intel Gigabit ethernet work out of the box.

However when i compile a xen kernel (tried "make dist", manual kernel compile), the two ethernet stop working. It looks as though the system tries to setup them as wireless cards. Here is the output of /etc/init.d/network restart with xen enabled kernel.

Shutting down loopback interface:                          [  OK  ]
Setting network parameters:                                [  OK  ]
Bringing up loopback interface:                            [  OK  ]
Bringing up interface eth0:  Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device eth0 ; No such device.
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
    SET failed on device eth0 ; No such device.
SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device
Failed to bring up eth0.

I also tried to manually build the kernel, and instead of making the intel driver as module, compiled it into the kernel. However the problem remains same. lspci shows both the cards present under xen kernel.

Can someone please tell me what can be done to resolve this issue ? Will really appreciate it.
