Is the 3COM 3C509B PCI (PCI PCI PCI __not__ ISA) supported?
I bought a 3c509b PCI thinking this would be the easiest and most
reliable thing to get working.. bullshit.
Bus 0, device 11, function 0:
Ethernet controller: 3Com 3C905B 100bTX (rev 48).
Medium devsel. IRQ 5. Master Capable. Latency=64. Min Gnt=10.Max Lat=10.
I/O at 0xe800 [0xe801].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe9000000 [0xe9000000].
but compiling the 3c509 driver into the kernel (2.2.17) does nothing,
and compiling it as a module yields
init_module: device or resource busy
for every possible irq setting, which is incidentally the same error
message I get if I try, just for fun, to insert a driver module for a
nonexistent device. In English: I can't get the 3c509 driver to recognize
my 3c509b PCI.
Is there another driver, or should I get a different card?
(Please don't send me mail telling me how well
your isapnp 3c509 works; mine does too.)
thanks for any suggestions, chris
