nvnet driver 2.6.4
 
Help!!

Can some one let me know where i can find a patch to make the nvnet driver source from the nforce unified driver package compatible with a 2.6.4 Kernel! (I am using 2.6.4-ck1 atm)

I did have a patch to make the nvnet work with the 2.6.3 but not 2.6.4

Or can nvidia PLEASE release a driver for the 2.6.* series, We can get the agp, ide, and sound from other places, but not the network card.

I have tried the forcedeth driver, but it is SHOCKINGLY bad.
menuconfig said it was experimental, but it said nothing about being this bad.

After clicking on a link or typing in a url, it takes the thing about half a minute before the title of the page will come up. That used to happen pretty much instantly. It is like I am using dail up :( There is some serious loag when doing anyhting with the network card.

At the moment, this is that last time I am ever going to buy an nforce based Mother Board, I mean it is good, but driver support isn't up to scratch, and nvidia have always been good with drivers.

Thanks

I dont want a patch for the kernel

I am using the forcedeth atm on 2.6.4
BUT

I have a patch to make nvnet driver compatible with 2.6.3, but I was looking for a patch to make the nvnet driver (from nvidia) compatible with 2.6.4 (pref 2.6.4-ck1 :)

I am using MDK 9.2 (if this helps)

Thanks

I use the stock kernel from http://kernel.org/

no patches , just compiled and make install
forcedeth.c: Reverse Engineered nForce ethernet driver. Version 0.23.

That is what I am using atm.

I put on the ck1 patch just for supermount, as there isn't a patch for 2.6.4 on the supermount site.

Instead of just complaining that it is shockingly bad, you could try to file a bug report describing the trouble you run into. Also, you should try a vanilla kernel to see if it is really forcedeth that is to blame.

What hardware are you using?

alloneword 03-14-04 09:29 AM

OK, i will give the vanilla kernel a go.

Hardware:
Nic: nForce one onboard my Epox 8RDA+
XP +2100
512mb ram
FX: 5700 U
Sound: C-Media 8738 (Running through alsa)
OS: MDK 9.2 with 2.6.4-ck1 kernel

I am only running the ck1 patch for supermount, as I cant find a supermount only patch for the 2.6.4

Where can I subit a bug report? the sourceforge page for forcedeth looks pretty dead. - ohh wait, I found an email address to send it to.
