Re: What is SIOCSIFFLAGS, and when will he be back?
Yes, I have booted linux both from a cold start and after running windows,
with no difference. But I guess that indicates some kind of Plug and Play
problem. I don't think that's what's going on in my case, since the dmesg
output (recorded below) says to me that the kernal is talking to the card
Does anyone, please, know how I could research this problem farther? Prove,
for instance, whether it is or is not a Plug and Play problem?
