[tulip] Tulip Driver problem (I think)
Mon Feb 3 20:04:01 2003
I am trying to set up a Bering LEAF firewall/router using two old DEC
PCI NICs. Bering uses Linux kernel 2.4.x. I have an existing (working)
firewall set up on these cards based on an older version of LEAF
(Eigerstein) and the Linux kernel (2.2.x). I am using tulip drivers in
both versions of the firewall.
In my new setup I am seeing an interesting problem. The driver seems to
run ok, but doesn't give the 'link beat good' message. The link light
on the NIC lights when I connect from my hub, but the link light on the
hub doesn't light.
Syslog records when I plug and unplug the cable into the NIC so the PC
must being 'seeing' something from the hub. I tried to set the debug
mode on my LEAF Tulip module but it tells me its an invalid option.
I am not sure that the module I am using is compiled in 2.4. Does it
need to be? I don't get any unresolved symbol errors.
If anybody out there can give me any advice or recommendations on what
my next step should be with this, I would be truly grateful!!
