I have been trying to get the above card working on a friends PC. Had it going
on kernel 2.0.36 using ISAPNP to set the io(0x230) and irq(5). Then modprobe
eepro io=0x230. It autodetected the irq as 5.
Since installing 2.2.9 I haven't been able to get it to work. I imagine it is
something to do with the PNP support in the kernel. I haven't actually been
able to find out how this works anywhere. Anyway I disabled the PNP (in kernel)
and used ISAPNP. This works with no errors. Then using modprobe I insert the
module. With just the io address as before it detects irq 10 (and doesn't
work). Even if this worked, irq 10 is used by the soundcard (which I don't know
how to set the irq of - sblive). So I stated irq as well as io in the options.
Still didn't work:( By this time the reluctant(ish) convert to Linux was saying
how much easier Windows is etc.
The errors that are given are:
IP multicast failed (3 times)
SIOCADDRT (expected this)
pinging just results in nothing (i.e. waits indefinately)
I am not sure if it was the kernel change that broke it. I just remember it
worked before and think it was with the old kernel (Suppose I should have tried
it as I still have the image + modules! - whoops).
Any help would be grately appreciated as I have no idea what to do. Tried
looking at the source, but it is over my head.
