Solaris 7 SPARC e1000g
 
I have an ancient solaris 7 box at work that i am trying to add an Intel PRO/1000 MT Server adapter to. However, i have been unable to locate a driver. I have found the x86 version, no sparc. Do any of you happen to know where i can locate one?

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

I doubt there is one - it's not listed as a NIC supported by Solaris 7 (including 11/99 release) in the Sun documentation.

However, apparently the driver has been open sourced, so maybe you can get one hacked up?

I'm afraid I don't know where to find the sources though.

If it's a production server, IMHO you'd be much better off getting your hands on a supported NIC, even if it's used.

Cheers,
Steve
