AMD 79C970 working?

Post by Oyvind Moe » Fri, 19 Jan 1996 04:00:00



I've found a place which sells a cheap PCI ethernet card based
on the AMD 79C970 chip.

The Hardware-HOWTO says ethernet cards based on the AMD 79c960
works fine under Linux. Can I use 79c960 drivers for a card
based on the 79c970 chip? Are there 970-specific drivers
available?

Bottom line: Will this card work under Linux?

Hmm, you found the HOWTOs, but let me guess... You were unable the read
the ethernet HOWTO??? YES, the chip is supported.

1. AMD 79C970

Hi,

        I've being trying to start my network but I think I need some help.
First, some data ...

        NIC: AMD 79C970
                IRQ = 5
                I/O address =0xFCE0

        Linux:Slackware
                Kernel = 2.0.30

        I've compiled the driver lance.c and loaded with "insmod" with the
option "io=0xfce0". But the message that I get after that says that the
io address is 0xecc0 and I cant start my net. Thanks for your help!
