I'm trying to build kernel 2.4.19 with the eepro1000 driver, but I don't
see that listed ANYWHERE under networking devices - either in 10/100 or
in the Gig sections!  I can't imagine this driver is experimental - but
I think I had experimental options set to 'show' anyway - still can't
find it!  

Anyone care to tell me where it is?  (I'm using 'make xconfig' by the
way)

Thanks.

You will need the -ac4 patches for 2.4.19 for e1000 support.

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/alan/linux-2.4/2.4.19/patc
h-2.4.19-ac4.gz

It will be included as a native driver in 2.4.20

Subject: Teaming the BroadCom Gig NIC in Redhat 7.3
Date: Thu, 22 Aug 2002 17:39:32 -0400

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Everyone,

 

Want to get Teaming or load-balanced GigE Broadcom NIC's going in RH7.3?
It took a bit of doing but here is my method (with no express/implied
warranty, support, or responsibility).

 

Under the 2.4.18-x kernel you can run the Broadcom driver for RH7.1 from
Dell with no issue, but the teaming is controlled by BASP (which the RPM
provided by Dell is useless). So I found that 3Com provides the tarball
and SRPM for BASP for their BroadCom based 3C996
(http://support.3com.com/infodeli/tools/nic/linuxdownloads.htm ) {it
would be great if Dell would provide the source!!!}.

 

Steps after getting the stuff from Dell and 3Com for load balancing
NIC's

1.	install the rpm from Dell
2.	install the srpm from 3Com, and then install the rpm that you
make
3.	edit modules.conf to set all BC-Ethernet interfaces to use
bcm5700 (instead of tg3)
4.	create your team-whatever file in /etc/basp/
5.	make your virtual interface sw0 in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-sw0 (I copied my ifcfg-eth0 changed
the device to sw0 and filled the VIP (virtual IP) into the ipaadr.
6.	Get your IP addressing straight! Each physical nic needs an
individual IP address and the sw0 interface is the load balanced VIP.
7.	unload the tg3 module, or reboot.
8.	Ping your VIP and test.

 

As always, this is just ~A~ way of getting this to work. There is no
support for this method, and no guarantee that it will work. Matter of
fact, let me state that 

 

My setup required an active/standby interface configuration (don't ask
it is the only option). The config for my Dell PE-2650 I used is at the
tail of the message (I have included everything touched to clear up any
questions).

 

Good luck, and remember I take no responsibility for what you do. This
is not advice, it is just a recount of how I got something working.

 

Jeff

Hello

I need to get a version of the aacraid.o compiled with kernel version
2.4.12
file and anything that goes with it.  I am not a linux person, but I
have an
application that needs this specifc version of the driver.  My server is
a
Dell Poweredge with the perc 2 raid controller.  I have tried the other
versions of the aacraid but each time it tells me there is a compile
version
error.

please help

The new afacli script from afaapps-2.6-1.i386.rpm doesn't appear to take
any
parameters, unlike the old binary.

So an obvious fix is:

--- afacli.default      Thu May  2 07:12:28 2002

Subject: RE: aic7xxx hangs in 2.4.18-5
Date: Thu, 22 Aug 2002 18:35:06 -0500

The aic7xxx driver in 2.4.18-5 is version 6.2.6 and you need version
6.2.8.
When you download the driver from
http://support.dell.com/us/en/filelib/download/index.asp?fileid=R45985,
it
has aic7xxx-6.2.8-src.tgz (6.2.8 source). You will need to recompile
this
for 2.4.18-5smp and 2.4.18-5bigmem, copy the aic7xxx.o modules to
/lib/modules directory, re-make the initrd for 2.4.18-5 and reboot.
If you prefer not to compile and you aren't using the secondary
scsi-controller (AIC-7890 for internal tape drives), you can disable it
from
bios, and this issue will go away.

Here are the steps if you want to compile:
1. Boot with your either UP or old kernel
2. Install the 2.4.18-5 source 
   rpm -ivh kernel-source-2.4.18-5.i386.rpm
   cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-5
   tar xvzf aic7xxx-6.2.8-src.tgz
3. a) For SMP kernel:
	  Edit the "EXTRAVERSION = -5custom" line in Makefile to say
"EXTRAVERSION = -5smp"
   	  make mrproper
   	  cp config/kernel-2.4.18.i686.smp.config .config
   	  make oldconfig
   	  make menuconfig      	---> optional, to speedup your compile
time
take out modules you don't need
   	  make dep && make clean && make modules
   	  cp -f ./drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/aic7xxx.o
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5smp/kernel/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/
   	  mkinitrd -f -v /boot/initrd-2.4.18-5smp.img 2.4.18-5smp
   b) For BIGMEM (RAM>4GB) kernel:
	  Edit the "EXTRAVERSION = -5cutom" line in Makefile to say
"EXTRAVERSION = -5bigmem"
   	  make mrproper
   	  cp config/kernel-2.4.18.i686.bigmem.config .config
   	  make oldconfig
   	  make menuconfig      	---> optional, to speedup your compile
time
take out modules you don't need
   	  make dep && make clean && make modules
   	  cp -f ./drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/aic7xxx.o
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5bigmem/kernel/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/
   	  mkinitrd -f -v /boot/initrd-2.4.18-5bigmem.img 2.4.18-5bigmem
	  reboot
I hope this helps.

Subject: aic7xxx hangs in 2.4.18-5


Greetings All,

Running Redhat 7.3 on a couple of dual CPU Dell 4600's.

I am aware that the 2.4.18-3 and 2.4.18-4 SMP kernels were susceptible
to
panic and failure to boot. I'm also aware that the
aic7xxx-6.2.8-0.i386.rpm
will fix the problem in those two kernels.

I thought the bug was fixed in 2.4.18-5 though, and I was surprised to
see
my server lock up on boot just like it did with the previous kernels.

Anyone know if it's supposed to be fixed or not? Is it actually fixed in
2.4.18-5 and I'm doing something so stupid I'm breaking it?

Can I simply apply the same aic7xxx-6.2.8-0.i386.rpm to the 2.4.18-5
kernel
without any problems?

All help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
