nvnet driver 2.6.4
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.
forcedeth come with the 2.6.4 kernel don't need to patch it
for me is quite stable on fedora core2
Thanks for replying
I have tried the forcedeth driver, but it is SHOCKINGLY bad for me.
I dont want a patch for the kernel

as i said:

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)
no patches , just compiled and make install
forcedeth.c: Reverse Engineered nForce ethernet driver. Version 0.23.
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?
OK, i will give the vanilla kernel a go.
Nic: nForce one onboard my Epox 8RDA+
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.
