>has anyone out there got this board to work with slackware 3.5?
I think I've got the same: 10/100 Mbps board, PCI
here is the kernel message string (from dmesg)
eth0: 3Com 3c905B Cyclone 100baseTx at 0x6600, 00:50:04:36:17:c4, IRQ 11
8K byte-wide RAM 5:3 Rx:Tx split, autoselect/NWay Autonegotiation interface.
Enabling bus-master transmits and whole-frame receives.

I've got Slackware 2.0.34,
(gcc version egcs-2.90.29 980515 (egcs-1.0.3 release))

I didn't do anything special.. it saw it straight away!
I have some trouble configuring a 3Com Fast Etherlink XL 10/100Base-TX with the
3c905B-TX with Linux. The driver recognizes it and configures it and eth0 is up
and running but nothing goes through to the network or comes out of it. Physical
connection is there, the lights are on. But not data gets transmitted or no data
comes throught it. 3c59x driver for linux identifies it correctly as 3c905B
"cyclone" and uses the io port 0x1000 and irq 10.
Did anyone come across this problem? If you have a solution can you please post it?
I would really appreciate that.
