Re: Anyone tried the ASUS A8V-E Deluxe?

However, the syskonnect.com driver fails in compilation already, so this is probably just something they need to modify there to support some functions that were changed fron 2.6.9 to 2.6.10. I'm assuming 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 function 'pci_dma_sync_single'
(and a bit later on)
*** Warning: "pci_dma_sync_single" [drivers/net/sk98lin/sk98lin.ko] undefined!

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
