Dual Token Ring Card Problem

Dual Token Ring Card Problem

Post by Rett Walter » Mon, 25 Jan 1999 04:00:00

Hello All:

I am currently attempting to get 2 IBM 16/4 Auto ISA token ring adapters
installed in an IBM PC 360 (i686/150).  I have been able to get Linux to
detect and install the first card.  However, only after I turned of PnP for
the card and hardcoded the resources.  I did the same with the second
adapter.  I set aliases for tr1 and tr0 in conf.modules, with one at io=a20
(this one works) and the other at a24 (this one doesn't work).  During
bootup I get good initialization of the first card, but the Kernel says
"Delaying Intialization of tr1".  I have verified the resources of both
cards to be unique...  I still can't seem to get it going.

Does anybody out there have any ideas???

Please Help!

I would advice either going to a more recent kernel, or back to 1.2.x,
and applying the TR patch.  As far as I can tell, the built-in TR support
in 1.3 was broken early on, and not fixed until very recently.

I had no end of problems - normally showing as booting and init'ing the
TR card ok, could ping ok, but any more then that (such as telnet or ftp,
either into or out of the Linux machine) gave a kernel panic.

Compiled up 1.3.72 the other day and it's been running perfectly ever
since.  I'm using a Madge Straight Blue right now but have also used
some older IBM 4/16 cards.
