3Com 3c905 UTP Network card

Post by Raymond Cha » Tue, 25 Nov 1997 04:00:00



        I have 1 machines, an PCI pentium-586 running linux using 2.0.30.
The pentium has a 3c905 UTP network card, but the linux can't recognise
this
card. I want to know the linux 2.0.30 that is it support the 3c905, and how
to
configure this card?

Raymond,

Check at http://cesdis.gsfe.nasa.gov/linux/drivers/index.html

Download 3c59x.c file and recompile the kernel. It works !!!

1. 3com 3c905 PCI networking card not recognized (solution)

We have a Linux DNS/DHCP server for our otherwise NT network and out
of the blue, a disturbing message filled the console screen:

eth0: Busmaster arbitration failure, status 88f2

The machine had to be reset to shut it down.  This message came back
upon rebooting and since the system has been untouched for the past 6
months, we assumed a bad ethernet card (It was an AMD Lance 2100 or
something).  Anyway, the company has pretty much gone to these new
3com PCI network cards so we plugged a new one in, recompiled for
3c900 (et al) support. and then got the boot message:

Unknown 3com PCI ethernet adapter type 9055 detected: not configured.

I browsed through the 3c59x.c file and found a list of supported cards
and a list of card ID numbers including 9050, and 9051.  After a
little more browsing I decided that this is how the driver detects
compatible cards.

I added 9055 to the list, recompiled, rebooted and all seems to work
fine.  Now before this whole thing catches fire and burns down the
building (not likely, but who knows) has anyone else seen this or
worked around this in this fashion?  BTW, The kernel is 2.0.33.
