 There's about 4 different dc based cards that don't work because they
 don't get the nic address right.  Well, that's what I think.

Use an /etc/start_if.dc0 script that uses `ifconfig' to set the eithernet
address.  wpaul show me how to find mine, and I just put in the
start_if.dc0 and forget about it. :)

That is fixed with my cardbus patch set... at least for the xircom.
It should be trivial to fix for the others if they store their 
nic address the same way.

Interestingly enough, they do.  However, of all my cards, the both my
xircom just work w/o this.

Just to add my $0.02, and in case anybody cares...

Cardbus is working ok on by Thinkpad with a 3Com pccard, except that the
system freezes when I remove the card...

Bye,

The dc driver would get the mac address wrong for one of my xircom
cards but not so wrong as to make it non-functional.  The other
xircom card (the type-III with modem) seemed to end up with a
mac address that was considered invalid by many switches.

 This is to let everyone know that right now as I type I am setting up
 FreeBSD to start downloading over my cardbus ethernet card. It seems to
 work great except it doesn't beep when the card enables, but that's fine
 with me. :-)

What card?

My Netgear FA510 (dc0) probes (sorta) but comes up with a crazy
MAC address, and then doesn't work. It doesn't even go UP.

MAC=00:00:80:00:00:80, FWIW.

2001-01-09 Thread Kenneth Wayne Culver

I'm using a 3ccfe575ct-d, it works great, I just installed using it by
making my own GENERIC kernel with the cardbus stuff on it, and putting it
on an install boot floppy instead of the one that normally comes on
it. I'm not sure the pmtimer is working though, and I keep getting
dmesg: malloc failed
