Re: Abit AX8 / IC Plus 1000 series Ethernet
IC Plus Corp. released IP1000A Linux driver v2.08 on May 13. I
installed it in my AX8 box, a dual booting system of WIN2K/FC4 Test 2
(kernel 2.6.11), and it works fine! IC Plus Corp. listened to users'
request and was very quick to respond. It seems that we do not have to
worry about compatibility issue of LAN with Linux in future.
Works - yes
Fine - no
Virtual interfaces dont work with this at all. eth0 works nicely but
eth0:0 won't work at all with this driver. I do admit there's a lot of
improvement from broken driver to working driver, but this isn't working
as it should.
Does anyone have any common tips as to what the problem might be. If I
plug in a PCI 3Com card, eth0 and eth0:0 work perfectly.
