This file contains the instructions and caveats for my SMC9xxx driver. You should not be using the driver without reading this file.

Things to note about installation:

  1. The driver should work on all kernels from 1.2.13 until 1.3.71. (A kernel patch is supplied for 1.3.71 )

  2. If you include this into the kernel, you might need to change some options, such as for forcing IRQ.

  3. To compile as a module, run ‘make’. Make will give you the appropriate options for various kernel support.

  4. Loading the driver as a module:

    use:   insmod smc9194.o
    optional parameters:
            io=xxxx    : your base address
            irq=xx     : your irq
            ifport=x   :    0 for whatever is default
                            1 for twisted pair
                            2 for AUI  ( or BNC on some cards )
