3com 3c509 driver

Post by Phong H » Sun, 20 Aug 2000 04:00:00



I examine  the file 3c509.c in  /drivers/net  of the kernel. I do not
see the
'register_netdev()' statement.  My understanding is that, a network
driver must
register with the kernel using 'register_netdev()' .

Can anyone let me know why the statement 'register_netdev' is not in the
file
3c509.c?

Hi,

I suspect that is it called from some function referenced by the 3c509
code. Check out the Linux Source cross reference (http://lxr.linux.no/)
to speed things up  - that is you can quickly find where functions are
defined and what calls what. Start with functions called in the
'init_module' function of the driver ;-)

If you search other driver files you will see that some have a call to
register_netdev & some don't...

Regards

1. 3com 3c509 driver problem(rh7.0)

I have a problem getting my 3com 3c509 ISA NIC to work in my
rh7.0 system - all network settings are correct, the driver is loaded at
startup (3c509 via /etc/modules.conf),
but I can't ping any hosts in my LAN - the problem seems to
be that the driver tries to use the AUI port of the card instead
of BNC, which is my connection (dmesg shows up eth0 using AUI).

does anyone know how to tell the driver to use BNC instead of AUI ?
