eepro100 on newer kernels (2.4.18-19)
On my Inspiron i8100 I'm using Linux Mandrake 8.0 (kernel 2.4.3),
where the Ethernet Pro 100 card works VERY VERY well.
I tried Mandrake 8.2 (kernel 2.4.18) and Mandrake 9.0 (kernel 2.4.19),
and with both drivers eepro100 and e100 the card doesn't work!!
Thus I'm sure it's a software problem. I looked in the forum but I
didn't find a similar case.
I tried to compile the Intel (or Scyld) drivers but, due to new
organization of kernel headers, they don't compile.
Any one knows how to compile the Scyld drivers correctly on a Linux
with kernel >= 2.4.18?
Why a newer kernel doesn't work with a card, while the old how work? I
thought maybe it's problem in the Mdk scripts. But I tried with manual
ifconfig and it does not work..
