-The EtherWORKS 3 driver in this distribution is designed to work with all
-kernels > 1.1.33 (approx) and includes tools in the 'ewrk3tools'
-subdirectory to allow set up of the card, similar to the MSDOS
-'NICSETUP.EXE' tools provided on the DOS drivers disk (type 'make' in that
-subdirectory to make the tools).
-
-The supported cards are DE203, DE204 and DE205. All other cards are NOT
-supported - refer to 'depca.c' for running the LANCE based network cards and
-'de4x5.c' for the DIGITAL Semiconductor PCI chip based adapters from
-Digital.
-
-The ability to load this driver as a loadable module has been included and
-used extensively during the driver development (to save those long reboot
-sequences). To utilise this ability, you have to do 8 things:
-
- 0) have a copy of the loadable modules code installed on your system.
- 1) copy ewrk3.c from the /linux/drivers/net directory to your favourite
- temporary directory.
- 2) edit the source code near line 1898 to reflect the I/O address and
- IRQ you're using.
- 3) compile ewrk3.c, but include -DMODULE in the command line to ensure
- that the correct bits are compiled (see end of source code).
- 4) if you are wanting to add a new card, goto 5. Otherwise, recompile a
- kernel with the ewrk3 configuration turned off and reboot.
- 5) insmod ewrk3.o
- [Alan Cox: Changed this so you can insmod ewrk3.o irq=x io=y]
- [Adam Kropelin: Multiple cards now supported by irq=x1,x2 io=y1,y2]
- 6) run the net startup bits for your new eth?? interface manually
- (usually /etc/rc.inet[12] at boot time).
- 7) enjoy!
-
- Note that autoprobing is not allowed in loadable modules - the system is
- already up and running and you're messing with interrupts.
-
- To unload a module, turn off the associated interface
- 'ifconfig eth?? down' then 'rmmod ewrk3'.
-
-The performance we've achieved so far has been measured through the 'ttcp'
-tool at 975kB/s. This measures the total TCP stack performance which
-includes the card, so don't expect to get much nearer the 1.25MB/s
-theoretical Ethernet rate.
-
-
-Enjoy!
