Description Frank Sweetser 2000-08-07 14:24:42 UTC
The 3c556 ethernet card (also known as the "mini-pci" card, appearing on
more and more laptops recently) isn't supported out of the box.  However,
the 3c59x driver will support it with a fairly trivial patch (attached).

Almost forgot - PCI id 6055.

Thanks for the patch, will include it in our source
package.  I assume that you are sending the patch
up-stream, or that you got it from up-stream?

Comment 4 Frank Sweetser 2000-08-08 14:01:55 UTC
I recieved this patch from Alan Cox on testers-list, so I guess that counts as
upstream =)  Upon further experimenting, it seems that on this laptop at least,
the card doesn't wake up from a suspend/resume, requring a driver
unload/reload.  I've been talking with Don Becker, and he seems to be working on
an idea for how to fix that in his driver.

Comment 5 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-10 19:39:45 UTC
Bill, does this need any changes in kudzu?
Adrian, want to append lspci output for Bill?

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-11 13:53:47 UTC
Added to CVS, will be in next kudzu build.
