Re: installing 1.3 and Intel EtherExpress Pro/10 (ISA)



Alan,

  If memory serves me correct, the current version of the eepro driver is
hardcoded (somehow) to work on IRQ 5.  Do you have a sound card installed
on IRQ 5? The latest driver from the author fixes this problem.  Look in
the driver source for his email address.

  Also, check using dmesg as to what ethernet connection the driver is
using.  The module should show 10B2 or 10BT (if you have a combo card)

  As a last resort, have you used the SOFTSET2 program that came with the
card to do a diagnostic on it?
