Re: D-Link Again!
I too have a D-link 530tx. DFE530TX. The base Debian setup didn't work for
me so I went to Donald Becker's site and got the latest update. Compiled and
installed the module... Whaaah its all up and running !
I'm using the 2.2.17 kernel. Donald's driver page gives a good description
of what to do to compile the driver. Feel free to contact me if you have any
kernel: via-rhine.c:v1.08 6/24/2000 Written by Donald Becker
kernel: eth0: VIA VT6102 Rhine-II at 0xe000, 00:50:ba:eb:c5:46, IRQ 11.
I've also added "alias eth0 via-rhine" to /etc/modutils/aliases, not sure if
this is really necessary though.
