3com 509 isa pnp card problem

Post by M. » Fri, 27 Apr 2001 02:57:04

i can't use my network card with FreeBSD :-[
after i try to use the interface - system freezes.
the os detects the card, strangely on 2 address ports: 0x210 and on
the bios assumes i have a PNP disabled OS [this works for other OS's],
so BIOS configures the PnP ISA card itself.

i have ASUS CUV4X board, it has only 1 ISA slot.

i've tried to recompile the kernel and to remove the unneccessary stuff,
i edited the configuration file,but i couldn't make it - something was
i'm using now RedHat, and my kernel doesn't support slices of FreeBSD -
so i can't
paste the errors :-/ and i don't have network under FreeBSD - the great
networking OS

anyway the card works fine under other OS's.. so this must be a
configuration problem,
but i don't know which exactly.
it is not a rare card.. what can be wrong ????



1. ISA 3com 509 card in RH 6.1 and 6.2

Hi!! I'm having a problem configuring my ISA 3com 509 card in RedHat!! I get
it to work in RH6.0. But there I have some other probs! I think it's because
RH are experiencing some problems with ISA-cards. So if anyone are
experiencing something similar, or know how I shall configure it, I will
appreciate your help!! Every hint and tip are welcome!!
(PS!! I got it to work under RH 6.1 once, but then it hang, and sendmail and
other things under startup would'nt load!!)

Thanks for any and all info and hints
