Error installing 3COM driver
I am attempting to install Debian 2.1. My NIC is a 3COM EtherLink III
3C509B ISA card. In the driver configuration part of the installation
process I choose the 3c509 driver and attempt to enter the command line
"io=0x300 irq=10" which is suggested by the installation program, and which
I know to be correct for my card. The driver
/lib/modules/2.0.36/net/3c509.o reports the error "symbol for parameter io
This appears to be a fault in the driver module. I downloaded drv1440.bin,
resc1440.bin and base2_1.tgz from Debian's site on Friday (99.10.15).
Installing the driver with no command line succeeds, but results in a
non-functioning NIC. Is there a fix, or can anyone suggest a workaround?
