Linux/3C619C TR card...
The 3C619C adapter must run in compatibility mode.
> Dear Linux/TR-gurus,
> a collegue of mine has installed a 3COM 3C619C token ring card in his
> Linux box (i486-ISA) [this card is listed in the HOWTO as "works"],
> but all we get when trying to activate the card with ifconfig after
> loading the appropriate driver as a module is an error message (error
> no 0001), repeating at regular intervals.
> This is independant of whether or not the card is plugged into the
> net. With a kernel compiled with the TR code included, the boot
> process stops with this error message repeating; using insmod, the
> ibmtr.o file is loaded, but the "ifconfig tr0 uuu.xxx.yyy.zzz" command
> intended to activate the card does not run to completion (rather, it
> stays in memory, unkillable, with the "D" shown on ps -ax).
> The box runs Linux-2.0.30 (Suse 5.0)... any hints would be very much
> Best regards,
