Description of problem:
The tlan driver module for ThunderLAN network cards seems to be mysteriously missing from my x86_64smp kernel RPM. It may be missing from other versions as well, but either way, I need to use it on my Opteron system and it would be nice if I didn't have to compile it manually.
The module doesn't appear to be in the install ISOs either.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a ThunderLAN card.
2. Fail to find drivers for it at install or after install.
3. (don't) profit!
Actual Results: The driver module is absent from the kernel RPM, and therefore thunderlan-based network cards cannot easily be used.
Expected Results: It would be much nicer if the tlan kernel module was included in the x86_64smp kernel. Thank you.
It's marked upstream as not 64-bit compatible.
Contacting the upstream maintainer Sam Chessman <firstname.lastname@example.org> is your best
bet, as fixing this really needs someone with the hardware, and knowledge of how
the chip works.
