DEC 21041 PCI Ethernet configuration

DEC 21041 PCI Ethernet configuration

Post by Mike » Mon, 28 Aug 2000 04:00:00

I have a DEC 21041 pci ethernet card in my FreeBSD box, and the kernel
recognizes it on bootup:
de0: <Digital 21041 Ethernet> irq 10 at device 15.0 on pci0
de0: driver is using old-style compatability shims

but ifconfig -a doesn't show the network interface, the only interfaces
I have are: lp0, sl0, ppp0, lo0, gif[0-3], stf0, faith0

what do I need to do to be able to recognize the interface and configure



1. DEC 21041 chip support with Kingston PCI ethernet


I would like to know if the Kingston Technology bus mastering PCI card
called the EtheRx works with the generic DEC 2104x driver.  The
Ethernet HOWTO says that it _may_ run depending on how the
manufacturer programs some GPR.

If the Kingston driver does not work, could you please reccomend
another moderately priced ($50 US) card that I can buy from Datacomm
warehouse that is based on the same chip set.

PS. I am planning on installing Linux for the 1st time ever, and so I
would like to know if I have to reinstall it if I add an ethernet card

 at the service of the state is readily identifiable as pure propoganda,
 and this helps free the mind. In contrast, the democratic systems seeks to
 determine and limit the entire spectrum of thought by leaving the
 fundamental assumptions unexpressed. They are presupposed but not
 asserted."  -C.P.Otero
