I have set up a cluster of 8 1.2 Ghz Athlons, each one has a 3COM 3C905CX.
The problem is that, with the 3c59x.o module, the cards do not recieve any
This is described in Beowulf digest, Vol 1 #274.
So I am using the 3COM supplied 3c90x.o module, which recieves data, but
theres one problem:
When I boot a node, the driver is reported as inserted 'boot: installing
module '3c90x', I see a 3COM message telling me the card has been found,
and then the RARP process takes place, in which, the node recieves an IP
address. After this, the machine hangs with:
SIOCSFFLAGS: No such device
On the screen.
I cannot go past this point.
