Hi Folks,

  Anyone made a 3Com 3C905-TX PCI bus ethernet board work? Which driver
or where do you find a 3C905-TX PCI driver??

Works fine with Donald Becker's Boomerang driver. I load it in as a module
for my second ethernet interface:


loch kernel: loading device 'eth1'...
loch kernel: eth1: 3Com 3c905 Boomerang 100baseTx at 0xe800,
             <eth_hw_addr>, IRQ 11
loch kernel:   8K word-wide RAM 3:5 Rx:Tx split, autoselect/MII interface.
loch kernel: eth1: Overriding PCI latency timer (CFLT) setting of 80,
             new value is 248.

Quote:>cat /proc/interrupts

 0:     267596   timer
 1:          8   keyboard
 2:          0   cascade
10:        388   3c509
11:        943   3c905 Boomerang 100baseTx
13:      21927 + IPI
14:      10281 + ide0

Can be obtained from the above NASA site, and is intended to be a direct
replacement for 3c59x.c

1. anyone have driver for 3com 3c905-tx IBM fast Ethernet PCI card for RS/6000?

Hey All,

I'm looking for a driver for a 3com 3c905-tx Tast Ethernet PCI card for the
RS/6000 machine. I've been to:
http://www-4.ibm.com/software/network/commserver/about/comp_products/...
_csaix.html
and it says that the driver is called:
devices.pci.b7105090

but a check of IBM's software reservoir returns no such software...

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

matt
