Here's something I would love to have some comment on:
Installed OSE 506 on IBM Netfinity 5600 using ibmraid BTLD;
works fine. During installation AMD PCInet card is correctly recognised.
It's also working .... but,
llistat -l shows the card is running at 10Mb
My switch says it's running at 100Mb
Next I changed the 'speed' entry in the space.c file for the
pnt driver (relink, reboot), but this didn't change anything.
Then I checked the 'Failover net 10/100' diskette also available
from IBM for this configuration. I found (can't remember the
exact numbers) that the driver in the 506 was from 1999 version 77.1
and the driver on the IBM disk was from 1995 version 3.9.
This can't be right?
Well, removed the card using netconfig (relink,reboot)
installed the driver from ibm (relink, reboot), installed the
card using netconfig (relink,reboot)
changed the 'speed' entry in the space.c file (relink, reboot)
and guess what?
llistat -l showed 100Mb!
Apart from the fact that ftp and rcp are still on less than 10Mb
(from sco to sco) this was a great adventure.
