HELP! Linux 1.3.35 and above, and tulip.c

Post by Lance Kalz » Sun, 03 Dec 1995 04:00:00



Has anyone modified the tulip.c carried in the 1.3.35 kernels and above,
so that it actually works?

I have already tried falling back to the de4x5.c driver.  But the one
given in the 1.3.35 and later kernel source trees doesn't compile!  The
* never finished re-writing it properly!

Okay, I have been able to use both the tulip.c and the de4x5.c driver
that came with the 1.3.43 kernel. The tulip.c driver is version 0.05
and I was not able to get either the 0.07a or the 0.10 version of the
tulip.c driver (obtained from cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov) working with
kernel 1.3.43. In kernel 1.3.45 *neither* the tulip.c or the de4x5.c
driver that came with the kernel would compile, nor would the tulip.c
v0.07a or v0.10 drivers. The *included* driver failed to compile due
to a multicast_list problem. The other tulip drivers failed to
compiled due to conflicting definitions for "init_etherdevice".

So my wonderful SMC EtherPower PCI card is stuck with kernel 1.3.43...

Just out of curiosity, *which* driver (assuming they compiled) would
have the better performance, the de4x5.c, the tulip.c 0.05, 0.07a, or
0.10 ? My machine is being used as a DNS server, web server, and a
file server so I need to have the best ethernet performance with the
least CPU overhead and fewest bottlenecks...

  I had this problem with v0.1

  I commented out the line :

  #include <linux/etherdevice.h>

  at around line 43 of tulip.c and it now works fine. I don't even have to
  tell it I'm using BNC rather than UTP anymore.

   I would have said, having used it for a while v0.1 is noticeably
   faster that v0.05.

1. PPP Networking problem with Linux kernels above 1.3.35

Since about kernel version 1.3.35, I've noticed a problem with certain PPP
drivers and linux.  The NCSA PPP driver and the MacPPP driver seem to be
okay, but when I try to use the Winsock trumpet program, a connection
is established, but then the connection just stops working.
Is anyone else having this problem?  Is there an available patch?
thanks.
