oh.

Yeah, the entire "net-tools" package is deprecated. I tend to forget which of the two (ethtool or mii-tool) is in that set.

# Avoid using any of these:
$ rpm -ql net-tools

/bin/dnsdomainname
/bin/domainname
/bin/hostname
/bin/netstat
/bin/nisdomainname
/bin/ypdomainname
/sbin/ether-wake
/sbin/ifconfig
/sbin/ipmaddr
/sbin/iptunnel
/sbin/mii-diag
/sbin/mii-tool
/sbin/nameif
/sbin/plipconfig
/sbin/route
/sbin/slattach


ok, so the mii-* stuff is deprecated (as is route, ifconfig, netstat, and arp? sigh).

apparently the network administrator went ahead and forced the switch port to use gigE, so its no longer in the 'broken' state of autonegotiating 100baseT.
