I've got an Intel 82559-based NIC (integrated into my Supermicro P4DC6+
motherboard) on which I'm running kernel v2.4.20. Which of the 2
available drivers, Becker's or Intel's, for this chipset should I run
with this kernel?
In prior kernel versions I've used Becker's drivers and have experienced
no problems. Now Intel's driver is included in 2.4.20. I've read the
included doc (e100.txt), but neither it nor the Configure documentation
suggest a reason to use one driver or another. I understand that the
Intel drivers have a feature that allows reduced CPU use at the expense
of responsiveness, but that's all I know.
Any advice on why I should prefer one driver over the other?
