Description Frank Sweetser 2000-08-07 10:24:42 EDT
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 10:01:55 EDT
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.

Bill, does this need any changes in kudzu?
Adrian, want to append lspci output for Bill?
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2000-08-11 09:53:47 EDT
Added to CVS, will be in next kudzu build.
