Hi!

I have tried my Apple Sonic ethernet card with
2.2.20 and 2.2.19 on my Mac LC II.

The card is detected three times at boot up, as
eth0, eth1 and eth2.

I can ping out from the Mac, but it can't hear
any replies...

eth0 has interrupt 57
eth1 has interrupt 59
eth2 has interrupt 61

If I use eth1 or eth2, Linux hangs hard.

any ideas?

    Have you tried another card (i.e. could the card be defective)?
    Apple Sonic Ethernet works for 2.2.19 and 2.2.19 in both of the
    PDS capable systems that I have access to (LC475 and LC575).
    If someone can provide me with the loan of an LC II I can attempt
    to debug and fix this problem.

    Recompile the kernel with the old Daynaport ethernet
    driver. The new 8390 driver does not work properly with
    older Macintosh computers.

    Should be fixed in the current 2.6 kernel.
