Re: TR

For TR Support you also need Ntools patch:


      The NetTools package contains a lot of the basic utils that you
      will use to communicate with network devices.  This includes
      programs like arp, rarp, route, ifconfig and netstat.
      Since these programs do not know about Token Ring by default,
      you will need to add the NetTools patch so these utilities can
      work more efficiently with the Token Ring driver.

        NOTICE:  The current version of NetTools is 1.2.0.  The patch for
        1.1.95 seems to work just fine with this version.

1.  Copy and Untar the NetTools source into your source directory.
    NOTE:  The copy of net-tools-1.2.0.tar.gz that I used did untar
     into the net directory under /usr/src/net directory.

      cp net-tools-1.2.0.tar.gz  /usr/src/net-tools-1.2.0.tar.gz
      tar -zxvof net-tools-1.2.0.tar.gz

4.  Uncompress and install the patch file to net-tools.

      cd /usr/src/patches/nettools
      gzip -d Nettools-1.1.95-TR.diff.gz
      cd /usr/src/net
      patch -p1 < /usr/src/patches/nettools/Nettools-1.1.95-TR.diff

5.  Make the net-tools files.

      make install
