I hope this is the right list for this type of question. After hours
of searching Google and a lot of trial and error, I'm hoping someone
will be able to point me in the right direction.
I have a Soekris net4501 board with natsemi ethernet onboard. I'm
running Debian with a 2.6.8 kernel. I'd like to enable VLANs on this
device. There's an issue where the current driver doesn't support
packets larger than 1500 bytes. The VLAN adds 4 bytes to that and
things generally go haywire when that happens.
I've found a number of patches for the 2.4.X kernels. I haven't been
able to find any patches for the 2.6.8 kernel. Here are the
1. Does a patch exist for th 2.6.8 kernel?
2. If not, how easy/hard would it be to modify one of the 2.4 patches to work?
Thanks in advance.
