Re: [linux-tr] Problem with IBM TR16/4 -Reply -Reply


Did you make sure that you are disabling ROM shadowing in the BIOS? You
need to disable it for the blocks of memory needed to get the Token-Ring
adapter up and running.

Hope this helps!

The card works under Linux Kernel 2.0.36 and 2.2.5. The kernel says:
IRQ 9; Memory base 0xD0000. I used the standard configuration, no
settings in /etc/conf.modules or kernel parameter. This is on an old
IBM 486DX4/100 with 32MB RAM, 1.6GB IDE HD, Adaptec 1542 SCSI-Adapter
with a tower of 4 CD-ROMS, AVM A1 ISDN-Card.

On the IBM Server 310 runs Kernel 2.2.5 with standard configuration
too. 128MB RAM, 2x4GB, 1x9GB HD, CD-ROM, HP Scanner, Conner Tape
on an Adaptec 2940UW (PCI). The PCI-TokenRing-Card did not work (
When is the driver available?), so i tried the ISA 16/4.
The /proc/* are:
