Am having trouble configuring my new SMC 8432T under Solaris 2.5.1. I
installed the OS using an SMC ISA card, the 8416. No trouble, Solaris
Now I've swapped out cards for the PCI version, and Solaris doesn't
see the new adapter. Notably, the HCL supports the card, but I've
read *somewhere* recently that the card must be configured to use a
memory range between C8000 and DE000. The card ships at E0000. The
EZstart utility won't alter that setting. SMC says that my PCI Bios
has to do the work. But, in my Asus P6NP5 m/b, I can only force the
interrupt on that slot.
I can tell Win95 to force the card to D0000, though once re-booted, it
defaults back to E0000.
Any way to force the Mem address prior to Solaris startup? Or within
Solaris itself? I've looked through /platform/x86/dev/kernal/smc.conf
but that appears to apply to SMC's ISA and MCA cards only.
