Package: modconf
Version: 0.2.44
Severity: normal

The information text in /usr/share/modconf/descr.gz for the 3c59x module
(3com NICs) seems to be incorrect. It says that providing the option
"12" (as a sum of 8 (=full-duplex) and 4 (100base-TX)) makes the NIC run
100 Mbps and full-duplex. That didn't work at least for the 3com 905B
and 3com 905C PCI cards. I assume this information is either a typo or

According to http://www-didc.lbl.gov/TCP-tuning/duplex.htm and
http://www.scyld.com/network/vortex.html the correct option for setting
the full-duplex bit is not 8 but 0x200. So to get 100/full working you
need to specify "options=0x204". Can be quite annyoing to transfer 55
Bytes/second instead of 9 MB/second. :)

 modconf (0.2.46) unstable; urgency=low
   * The "some temporary solutions to get the RC bug fixed"
   * Adopt this package until the exact maintainance
     is discussed (Closes: #262773) Since the package
     isn't part of the Debian installation process
     anymore, debian-boot probably isn't the right
     maintainer anymore
   * Acknowledge NMU by Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pen~a
   * debian/control:
     - Change maintainer address
     - Add alternative depends on module-init-tools
       (versioned >= 3.1-pre2-1 for config file location)
     - don't build-depend on perl-base, it's essential
   * debian/postinst: remove, only set usr/doc symlink
   * debian/postrm: remove XSI:sm
   * modules/params:
     - Change config file location for 2.6 kernels to
       etc/modprobe.d (Closes: #256401) This is only a
       temporary solution, better leave this to modprobe
       if not otherwise commanded
   * Recompiled with kernel-source-2.4.26
 modconf ( unstable; urgency=low
   * NMU
     - Recompiled the package with kernel-source-2.4.25. Funny, though,
       since double quotes now go away (Closes: #227691)
     - debian/mkkerneldesc.pl now warns if you have not unpacked the kernel
       sources, unfortunately that's something that needs to be done by the
       user himself for the moment (but could be improved so that it's done
       in the package since only a few files are needed), this does not
       close 235068 but improves the error messages.
     - Rewrote some entries in the Module-HOWTO based on information from
       the new module HOWTO, this includes also the 'max_loop' parameter
       (Closes: #173734)
     - Module-HOWTO now says options for full_duplex in 3c59x are 0x200
       (Closes: #194926)
     - Added spanish translation of modconf provided by Ruben Porras
       (Closes: #206203)
     - Modconf.8 (all languages) now points to /usr/share/modconf instead of
     /usr/lib/modules_help (Closes: #233601)
     - Updated eval_sv.fixed with patch provided by Era Eriksson
     (Closes: #191048)
     - Fixed typo (Accellerated -> Accelerated) (Closes: #191046)
     - Load /etc/modules-$KernelVersion or /etc/modules-2.6 if available
     as module-init-tools does (Closes: #225204)
     - Changed message regarding help page availability in eval_C.fixed,
     only updated the spanish translation though. (Closes: #127529,#178824)
     - mkpcmciadesc.pl now aborts if no parameter is given
     - Added some TODOs items regarding eval translations, HOWTO help
       translation availability and the new module HOWTO
