Description Michael Redinger 2000-11-28 10:39:15 UTC
During install, the SMC 9432TX card (aka EtherPower II) was not correctly
found although the
driver was there (drivers disk) - it's even missing from the cards list
that is displayed after
inserting the drivers disk. I moved the driver to the (net) install disk
with the same results. Adding a new line to pcitable solves this problem
for me (well, after moving the driver to bootnet.img; not sure if this is
also true for the drivers disk):

0x1400  0x1401  "epic100"       "Standard Microsystems Corp [SMC]|9432 TX"

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-11-28 19:24:27 UTC
1400 for a vendor id is 'Artx Inc.' - is this a rebadged card?

Comment 2 Michael Redinger 2000-11-28 19:46:40 UTC
No, definitely not. We do buy maybe 100 of them each month, even the packaging
is from
SMC ...

However, I know SMC does radically change chips even within a product line - I
know that
the 9432TX uses at least 3 different chips; the one I did check was definitely
the last release
from SMC.

I just found two computers with older models (the 2nd release I do know about)
of the so-called "9432-TX", they do use 0x1000 (is this correct?).

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-11-29 00:46:58 UTC
0x1000 (for the vendor) is Symbios.

SMC's vendor id is 10b8 (according to /usr/share/pci.ids)
