SMC 8416 T support under FreeBSD ?

Post by Thierry Herbelo » Sun, 20 Feb 2000 04:00:00



Hello,

I' sifting through all I've found as documentation and I still can't
know if FreeBSD 3.4 can use an SMC8416T board.

I've had a look at the dejanews archives, and it seems this board is
compatible with the "ed" driver.

can someone confirm this ?

   Yes:

ed1 at port 0x280-0x29f iomem 0xd8000-0xd9fff irq 10 on isa0
ed1: address 00:00:c0:a4:86:c1, type SMC8416T (16 bit)

   The only thing you have to remember is to boot to the DOS
diskette for EZ Start (see below) and disable Plug-n-Play.

ftp://smc.com/downloads/Products/Utilities/EZStart for Ethernet/

   Download ez556.exe and use the lha port
(cd /usr/ports/archivers/lha && make install) to extract it, and
copy it to a bootable DOS diskette.



 
 
 

1. SMC 9432 TX (Ether Power II) and SMC Ether EZ (8416)

Hi

I tried to use either the SMC Ether EZ (8416)
or SMC 9432 TX (Ether Power II)
under SuSe 6.4
I could not find the driver for the first card. And also the second
listed as experimental did not work neither compiled as a module nor
embedded in the kernel.

Anybody has experience on this

Thanks
