Re: Moved to 2.4.21 kernel

Is your SBUS NIC a "Happy Meal Ethernet" card?  "hme" is not compiled in the
Sparc32 kernel 2.4.21.  Perhap, try this:

modprobe sunhme [macaddr=0x0,0x0,0x0,0x0,0x0,0x0]

You only need to specify "macaddr" if you want a different mac from your
onboard Lance Ethernet.  I also observed a feature about assigning mac.  My
Sparc Classic/Gateway has 2 SBUS NICs and onboard Lance.  When I specified
mac for one of the sunhme, the kernel automatically assigns the next
sequential mac for the second sunhme.
