Attached is the patch that fixes support for the Lite-On PNIC_II for the
tulip driver on my machine for kernels 2.4.X.
So if you are using a NIC that includes the Lite-ON PNIC_II (LC82C115)
please give this a try. This includes some AsanteFast 10/100 cards that
run under both Mac OSX and PPC Linux. Specifically the AsanteFast 10/100
with Part Number: 61-20590-01 uses this chip and this is the card all
testing was done for.
Special thanks to Jeff Garzik for answering some questions and providing
the PNIC_II datasheet and the datasheet of the Intel/DEC 21143 which it is
similar to. Without those docs, I would have been lost for sure.
NOTE: This patch is just being submitted with this e-mail and therefore
has *NOT* yet been accepted by Jeff (the official tulip driver maintainer)
but it works fine for me and hopefully for others who are having troubles
with some AsanteFast 10/100 NIC cards. But there are no guarantees.
Hope this helps.
- now back to fixing my Adaptec scsi driver
