Description Jeremy Katz 2000-10-01 21:37:29 UTC
There's yet another tulip revision out in the wild.  Shipped as
Linksys/Network Everwhere Model NC100 version 2.1, lspci -v gives

00:11.0 Ethernet controller: Bridgecom, Inc: Unknown device 0985 (rev 11)
	Subsystem: Bridgecom, Inc: Unknown device 0570
	Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 3
	I/O ports at 1000
	Memory at f4000400 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
	Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2

The current tulip driver seems to work fine once the PCI id is added, so if
an errata kernel ends up needing to be released for whatever reason, it
would be nice to have the pci id added so that the tulip module doesn't
have to be recompiled for such a piddly thing ;)

This sound exactly like my situation.  I have met with total frustration in trying to compile a new module using the instructions on 
http://www.scyld.com/network/updates.htlm. It was only recently that i noriced the critique of the RH 7.0 distribution that appeared on that page. The 
instructions are excellent. i apparently do not have the requesite tools. 

My problems (or at least the ones i know about) are;

1. i cannot find the egcs (aka kgcc) compiler.  Is this in an RPM package that i have to install.

2. i have no /usr/src/linux path.  i assume i should install the kernel-src package shipped with my distribution.

3. can you tell me exactly where the tulip.c you diff''ed came from.  these lines are not in my tulip.c under /user/src/redhar/netdrivers-2.0/ path. i assume 
if that version of tulip is shipped in my distribution i should be able to find those lines, add your changes and following the basic instructions for 
building and installing a new kernel module.

i would appreciate any assistance you can render.

The PCI ID will be present in the next kernelbuild if/when we release one.
