Description Somin Lee 2005-04-28 12:52:20 EDT
Description of problem:
I am using Intel Server Platform SR1435VP2 (board is SE7320VP2) This system has 
two Gigabit Ethernet card. One of them is Intel chip, and another is Marvell 
When I first use kernel-2.6.9-1.667 in Fedora Core 3 CD, Marvell's NIC was not 
working. I downloaded driver from www.syskonnect.com
(http://www.syskonnect.com/syskonnect/support/driver/d0102_driver.html) and 
could build SE98lin module, and it worked well. But after I updated to Kernel-
2.6.11-1.14_FC3 from Fedora 3 updates, when I compiled the same source and 
newest source file from Syskonnect.com, it shows segmentation fault error and 
doing infinite loop.
-latest output lines -

Compile the kernel (done)                                            [   OK   ]
Copy driver man page into /usr/share/man/man4/ (done)                [   OK   ]

working./install.sh: line 1191:  4188 Segmentation fault      $insmod_bin ./
$drv_name.ko >>$logfile 2>&1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
With Marvell's new chip 88E8050. I used Intel SR1435VP2

Steps to Reproduce:
1.With Marvell's new chip 88E8050
2.download driver from www.syskonnect.com
3.run "install.sh" in the driver installation files 
Actual results:
After compiling kernel and sk98lin.ko module, install scripts tried to load 
sk98lin module. At that moment, segmentation fault occurs.

Expected results:
1.Nomally sk98lin.ko module loaded
2.NIC starts to work, and status message for Marvell NIC shows in console
-When I succeeded on kernel-2.6.9, it shows speed, duplex, and other status 
information for Marvell NIC.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2005-04-28 13:03:25 EDT
Why are you trying to build your own sk98lin?  The kernel is shipped with its
own sk98lin which works on many cards.  I have two different motherboards at
home where it is working great.

If the FC3 update sk98lin doesn't work, that is the real bug and it should be
filed at upstream bugzilla.kernel.org too.

If the vendor has fixes for the driver, they should communicate with kernel.org
developers so it becomes part of all Linux distributions.
