encore ne2k clone stoped working.

Post by Rim Vilgaly » Sun, 26 Dec 1999 04:00:00



i have a encore ne2000 clone that worked great under redhat 5.1 (kernel
2.0.34).  however, since i have installed redhat 6.1 (kernel 2.2.12), the
driver will not compile (the driver is "fet916" and i have only seen it on a
disk that came with the card).  is there an updated driver somewhere?  ne.o
doesent want to work.

the card is an encore esl-816v-t

1. YDL-BIOS not enabling ne2k clone ethernet card

I have done a lot of research on this ethernet question. my card is a
MacAlly card with a RealTek 8029 chip -- a NE2000 clone, as I discovered
from D. Becker's ethernet driver site. I have used modprobe to load the
ne2k-pci module, using the i/o and irq settings I found in the /proc/pci
file. In fact, I have done this many times, and each time the eth0
interface fails to initialize at boot. The last time I tried this, the
dmesg file had the following text at the very end:

*******
cat uses obsolete /proc/pci interface
ne2k-pci.c: v.1.02 for Linux 2.2, 10/19/2000, D. Becker/P. Gortmaker,
http://www.scyld.com/network/ne2k-pci.html

The PCI BIOS has not enabled this NE2K clone! Updating PCI command
0000->0001.
ne2k-pci.c: PCI NE2000 clone 'Realtek RTL-8029 at I/O 0x400, IRQ23.
eth0: Realtek RTL-8029 found at 0x400, IRQ23, 00:00:1C:10:67:C4.\

*******

Could someone help me interpret what this means? If the card needs to be
enabled, how do I do that?

(The last time I checked  lsmod, the ne2k-pci module was not loaded. I
suppose this is because the card was not enabled at startup.)

Is there something else I need to do or check?

Thank you.

P.S. my computer specs are:
Model name: UMAX SuperMac C500
Processor info: PowerPC 603ev
Machine speed: 240 MHz
Built-in memory: 112 MB
Ethernet: 2 10BaseT PCI Ethernet Adapters
