I did it, taking drivers from 2.5.12, and at least it compiles.
I have to try in the real box, but I don't think there were any problems,
at least the same than 2.5....
Marcelo, is there any chance to get this in next -pre or in .19 ?
Patches are big, so I put them at:
(note, second gives some offsets and a fail if applied without the first
- e100 has no help text.
- Versions are far newer than those listen in intel web pages:
* e100: Intel web is 1.8.35, the driver taken from 2.5.12 is 2.0.27-pre3
* e1000: Intel web is 4.1.7, driver in 2.5 is 4.2.8
Thanks for all the info.
