Are you using the e1000 that is included in the 2.6.11 kernel? ethtool
-d eth? works fine for me. What else is different in your env?

I have patched the e1000 in my 2.6.11 kernel, but I see this -d problem
on other un-patched systems as well, so it can't be (just) my patches
that are the problem.

I also tried this on my x86-64 opteron system, running FC3.  I
have not hacked up this kernel or user-space tools at all :)

[root@grok lanforge]# ethtool -i eth3
driver: e1000
version: 5.5.4-k2-NAPI
firmware-version: N/A
bus-info: 0000:02:08.0
[root@grok lanforge]# ethtool -d eth3
Cannot dump registers: Success
[root@grok lanforge]# uname -a
Linux grok 2.6.10-1.766_FC3smp #1 SMP Wed Feb 9 23:17:48 EST 2005 x86_64 x86_64 
x86_64 GNU/Linux

I'm using ethtool 1.8 on this system.

What version of ethtool are you using?
