Testing details

This system was tested with 10.04 LTS, running the 2.6.32-33.70 kernel.

Certification notes

Cisco VIC Ethernet
As of 10.04.3, the driver module 'enic' is not part of the installer kernel. Because of this, you will be unable to configure network devices during install and the installer may complain of no network devices found. You can complete installation manually and configure network devices after installation. At that point, the enic driver loads successfully at boot and networking functions as expected. This will most likely, however, have impact on attempts to preform network installations.
