  1. [9fans] Intel Pro/1000 problem

    Hello! I'm brand new to Plan 9, and I'm installing it on a computer for
    the first time. It's a Dell Precision 450, a P4 Xeon-based machine that
    seemed to mostly meet the things on the supported hardware list. The
    integrated Ethernet is an Intel Pro/1000 MTW according to Windows and an
    82545EM according to Linux, but Plan 9 doesn't detect it.

    Here's the relevant portion of the output of the pci command:

    3.14.0: net 02.00.00 8086/100f 11 0:fe3e0004 131072 1:00000000 16
    4:0000ecc1 64

    Thanks for any help,
    Philip Brooks

    i assume you are talking about the kernel and not 9load.
    this card is recognized by plan 9. /sys/src/9/pc/etherigbe.c:38
    i82545em = (0x100F<<16)|0x8086,
    the other reason it would appear that your card is not recognized
    is that it is not resetting properly.

    if you are also in athens, i would be happy to take a look if you'd
    bring the machine by. contact me off list.
