eth3com.device crashes on X1000

Post by ncafferkey »

Hi,

eth3com.device 53.3 crashes when I try to use it with a 3Com 3C905C PCI card under OS4.1FE. The device gives a 0x80000002 guru upon opening. The same card works fine in my SAM440ep. Is there another version of the driver that works?

Short answer:
No, there is only the one V53.x version. V53.3 was released in 2011 and no newer version has been released.

No bug reports have been filed since 2006, the two from that year were both closed at the time.

So your problem has not been reported before. Have you checked it with a clean system (no add-ons) ?
cheers
tony

Thanks for the information Tony. It's a pretty clean system, as I only installed FE a few weeks ago. Anyway, it's not a big problem for me as I have other cards; I'm mainly just curious if it's a known issue. Perhaps it could have gone unreported as the 3Com cards are pretty old now and people likely use RTL cards a lot more often. I did notice a thread from 2017 where someone had problems with that driver on an X5000 however (sorry I don't have the link to hand, but search for eth3com.device if interested).

Wasn't this driver made for the internal NIC of the original AmigaOnes (SE/XE etc.)? I wasn't even aware that there were PCI cards that were also supported (if they are).

Best regards,

Niels

Yes, I believe it was written for the internal NIC on the SE/XE. I don't know if it's officially supported, but it works fine for add-on cards on some machines (including the SAM440ep as I mentioned). It has to be a 3C905C card however; earlier revisions don't work.
