RE 2.3.99-pre5 network VERY slow
Tue, 25 Apr 2000 11:12:22 CDT
I sent this earlier but maybe not....
I copied the eepro100.c (my NIC) driver from 2.3.99-pre3 into pre5 and
rebuilt the kernel. This works!
Apparently there was a driver _UPGRADE_ to pre4 and pre5 to take advantage
of some changes int pci drive (you can read a months worth of kernel-devel
mail) and some how the driver got hosed....
anyway, it works and I am iptabling :)
If your not using eepro100.c look at the 2.3.99-preX changes and see if your
drivers been dinked with.
