Accton Cheetah 10/100 problems
Mon Nov 9 18:02:05 1998
Damn! That looks just like the situation/error I've been getting
for over a month with my PCI NIC. I finally solved it on
friday. How, you ask? I opened up my case, and move the
card from one PCI slot to the other. /proc/pci then listed
the card correctly (a generic RealTek). I compiled the driver
directly into the kernel, and handed the parameters to LILO.
I have no idea if it was the PCI slot that it was in, or if
I simply didn't have the card in all the way.
Mr. Becker suggested that I check that the card was in all the way.
Ths seemed silly at the time, so I put it off for a week.
I wish I hadn't wated...
