  1. [9fans] Soekris 4801 bootp timeout

    Moin,

    I have problems to boot a Soekris 4801 via PXE from my Plan 9 DHCP
    Server. Here the console output

    Plan 9 Bootstrap (serial console)
    ns83815: auto neg timed out
    ns83815: auto neg timed out
    ether#0: 83815: port 0xE100 irq 10: ffffffffffff
    ether#1: 83815: port 0xE200 irq 10: ffffffffffff
    ether#2: 83815: port 0xE300 irq 10: ffffffffffff
    bootp on ether0 for timed out
    bootp on ether1 for timed out
    bootp on ether2 for timed out
    cpu0: 267MHz AMD Geode GX1 loop 12107
    Boot devices: fd0 ether0 ether1 ether2
    boot from: ether0
    bootp on ether0 for timed out
    boot from:

    here my pxe config

    bootfile=ether0!/386/9pccpu.gz

    partition=new
    *nomp=1
    ether0=type=83815
    mouseport=ps2
    console=0

    and the entry from lib/ndb/local

    sys=abc ether=000024c89474
    ip=192.168.47.11
    dom=abc.mteege.de
    bootf=/386/9pxeload

    Is there an error in my config?
    Many thanks
    Matthias

    i had a similar problem. /n/sources/contrib/quanstro/9pxesoekris
    worked for me. the change is in /n/sources/contrib/quanstro/src/9loadaoe/ether83815.c
    iirc, it was a pretty simple change.

    the cards don't look like they're initialized correctly. the driver
    reports their mac addresses as "FFFFFFFFFFFF"
