natsemi driver fails on hw addr change
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:07:31 EDT
In 8.0 the natsemi driver receive fails if you change its hw address and it is
not in promisc mode. Apparently a fix for this is in the current bitkeeper trees

[PATCH] increase eeprom delay
I seem to be having this problem - I cant use the network unless i start a
tcpdump -i eth0 (are there otherways to force promisc. mode :) ) which of course
is not a valid solution...
Before nagging too much i will download the patches from the report and try them
out - if it works, when do you expect an errata kernel to be released containing
btw, I did not change hw address, so maybe i should create a new report - please
also, i'm having problems applying the patches to the 2.4.18-14 source, were the
patches generated on a different version of the kernel source?
okay - i guess i'll open another report on the slightly different scenario,
thanks for your patience!
