Subject: [linux-tr] bsm fix and other questions:
I just recently reinstalled linux using Redhat 6.0 (2.2.5-15) and have been
trying to get my ibm token ring card to work. I have done what I needed to do
to the card (a 16/4 token ring card) by running lanaidc and doing the
/fast=auto16 (or whatever the command is. I can't remember right now, but the
card was working under the old kernel).
The problem is this: I downloaded the bad slab magic fix from ibmtr.net and
tried to use the command 'patch ibmtr.c bsmfix_patch' but I get rejects from the
patch command when I do that.
Am I doing this wrong? If so, what command do I need to run
I presume that when I apply the patch I should recompile the modules? (make
modules, and then make modules_install?)
1 other question: When the driver was running on my old kernel, I couldn't get
nmap or sniffit to work. Any ideas/comments?
Thanks for the time.....
