Trouble in Gateway Solo 5100 docking station
Fri Sep 4 07:47:11 1998
I have a Gateway Solo 5100 with a docking station with 2 PCI slots.
I got an EEPro100+ (82558B is what is written on the chip) and I cannot get it
to work reliably.
The eepro100.o module (in 2.0.35) detects the card and checks it out OK, but
when I try and set it up with ifconfig the whole system locks up hard about 4
times out of 5 (apparently randomly). Catrl-alt-del doesn't work and mouse
tracking is lost.
I see the same behaviour in Windows 98, even with recent drivers.
Anybody got any clues?
