However, the syskonnect.com driver fails in compilation already, so
this is probably just something they need to modify there to support

it won't be much trouble for them, but the better question is WHEN
they'll be doing the fix. I've e-mailed them with details, let's hopt
they have a chance to respond.
In the meantime, I think I'll condemn that particular motherboard to
Windows work. I'll test this further on Linux when and if new driver
versions are released. I'll inform the debian-amd64 list at that
time, unless someone beats me to it.
Well, if your compiler only complains about pci_save_state and
pci_restore_state, you can change yourself. Just remove the second
parameter in the calls. This changed to 2.6.10..
Thanks, I gave it a try and the driver actually compiled now, but it
seems there are further complications.
During the compile, then again during make install and finally in
modprobe (where loading the module fails), I get an error. This is what
it looks like in kernel compile:
drivers/net/sk98lin/sky2.c: In function 'HandleReceives'
drivers/net/sk98lin/sky2.c:1519: warning: implicit declaration of
(and a bit later on)
*** Warning: "pci_dma_sync_single" [drivers/net/sk98lin/sk98lin.ko]
make modules_install puts it this way:
WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.10/kernel/drivers/net/sk98lin/sk98lin.ko needs
unknown symbol pci_dma_sync_single
