Hi Denis!

Your problem known, I've got the same. I mailed this list also, but
there are no hints for gericom laptops. 

The reason of this problem is that the bios leaves irq-assignments to
the os and there is no bios-setting to change (until gericom provides an
bios-update) But these people say that they only support Windows.

I do not know what to do. As far as I can see it's no problem of the
tulip-driver, but a problem of PCI-Driver, but I do not have the ability
to track down and fix it.


Heute ist nicht alle Tage, ich komm' wieder, keine Frage!!!


Why on earth do people buy old bottles of wine when they can get a
fresh one for a quarter of the price?
