I am trying to install OpenBSD-Amiga-2.1 and have a Hydra ethernet card that
appears to have a "bad habit". I have used this ether card under NetBSD and
AmiTCP, and while the NIC memory error message would also appear under NetBSD,
it would only appear once, and then go away.
A note to the distributor about this message resulted only in a shoulder shrug.
It appears that OpenBSD is not able to (re)configure the card ?
The full error text is as follows:
ed0: length does not match next packet pointer
ed0: len 0060 nlen 1360 start 0c first 0d curr 0e next 21 stop 40
ed0: NIC memory corrupt - invalid packet length 4960
I install-configured ed0 with proper address and netmask. One time with no link
config, and one time with link config (the card has BNC and AUI connectors that
are active simultaneously, from what I remember).
I also see that IFCONFIG has no MTU parameter, and there isn't any NETSTAT
