unfortunately it does not :/

sometimes kernel prints "eth0: config: auto-negotiation on, 100HDX,
10HDX.", the eth0 is up and everything works.

most of the times "eth0: config: auto-negotiation off, No speed/duplex
selected?." is instead printed and eth0 seems to not exist.

i tend to exclude hw problems, older kernel 2.4.x always succeed in
using eth0.

is there any way to force eth0 auto-negotiation?

thank you
