Ok- I'm having a lot of agro with the 2.6 kernel, whilst I am trying to fix that can anyone else help? I have read around and it appears to be more of a hardware/bios issue. The motherboard I am now trying to use is a PC Chips M572- I have updated the bios to the '24/02/99 S' version- I can't find anything newer than that, but there could easily be something, as the manufacturer has nothing about it on their website.
The depressing thing about this is that before the bios flash I could get the card itself not to give the errors on boot (any device plugged into it would then refuse to accept an address), now the two ports both fail to accept an address (now the same as the vxpro board).
I know the M572 has on-board usb, but I don't have a dongle for it.
PLEASE- SOMEBODY HELP ME- this is getting really depressing- I have been trying to get a server working for more than a year now
I know it's almost certainly not a linux related problem but I'm really fed up- I have spent hours and hours googling on this- nobody seems to know anything. Anyone elso who has had this problem just moved the card to another slot and it worked fine- I've tried all sorts of things on three different motherboards and it still only works on my newest pc (which I can't use as a server).
Thankyou in advance- your help is greatly appreciated
