Default Re: forcedeth 0.50 - can't turn on gbit

unfortunately the switch doesn't provide the link speed, but i'm only getting 100Mbit speeds.

its the lastest version of ethtool (version 5).

dmesg gives me:
forcedeth.c: Reverse Engineered nForce ethernet driver. Version 0.50.
eth0: forcedeth.c: subsystem: 01462:7228 bound to 00:14.0

and if i comment out the include for forcedeth-compat.h i get this error:
forcedeth.c: In function `nv_probe':
forcedeth.c:5680: error: structure has no member named `poll_controller'

moving to a 2.6 kernel is not really an option at this stage. seems like version 0.60 doesn't support 2.4 kernels at all though.

has anyone got version 0.50 to work at gbit on a 2.4 kernel?
