SubjectRealTek NIC on alpha?
Hi,

as my "normal" PC just died and I strongly need it as a router I thought
about adding this functionality to my alpha (digital AlphaStation 500
333 Mhz).

So I got a RealTek NIC from my i386 machine and put in into my alpha
hoping that would work (it would told me this should).

After installing the NIC the boot outputs

"
SLIP: version 0.8.4-NET3.019-NEWTTY (dynamic channels, max=256).
CSLIP: code copyright 1989 Regents of the University of California.
loop: loaded (max 8 devices)
Linux Tulip driver version 0.9.15-pre12 (Aug 9, 2002)
eth0: Digital DC21040 Tulip rev 36 at 0x9800, 00:00:F8:23:30:83, IRQ 29.
8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.2
"

and does not do anything after that.

This was from 2.4.21-rc7, I tried 2.2.25 before and there was a similar
problem:

"
SLIP: version 0.8.4-NET3.019-NEWTTY (dynamic channels, max=256).
CSLIP: code copyright 1989 Regents of the University of California.
tulip.c:v0.91g-ppc 7/16/99 becker@cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov
eth0: Digital DC21040 Tulip rev 36 at 0x9000, 00:00:F8:23:30:83, IRQ 29.
eth1: region already allocated at 0x9000.
"

.. and halts too doing nothing...

Any advice? Do I need some boot parameters?

Regards,

René
