[tulip] Only 1 port on a 21143 Quad.
Fri Jun 7 09:58:01 2002
21143 blues all round. If -anyone- has experience getting this type of
work, and could spare the time to give some pointers on how to get it to
it would be -much- appreciate.
Previous posts have delineated the problem; but in summary:
--> i'm trying to get a 21143 Tulip chip quad card, sitting in a Compaq
--> i've tried kernels 2.2.21, 2.4.2, 2.4.14, and 2.4.18. by this, i mean
that i have
tried both the Tulip drivers included -with- these kernels (as
well as compiled-in), and i have also tried compiling the drivers
and loading them as modules in each of these kernels.
--> the problem is always that only one port is known to the o/s; so eth0
assigned with an address, but eth1, 2, and 3 can't.
--> my /etc/modules.conf aliases eth0-3 to tulip, and also sets a debug
6 which produces no debug info :-/
--> pci-config finds what appears to be the 4 ports as consecutive devices
i take to mean that the card is not actually damaged).
--> i'm running Slackware 8.0.
--> i'm out of ideas, on how to get this card to work.
If there is anyone on who has an idea on why it's not working and/or how
to get it
to work, please drop me a line.
all the best,
