Question problems in installing drivers for myson mtd80x fast based ethernet card drivers

Myson MTD80X Based Fast Ethernet Card

Linux 2.4.X Driver Installation Guide

Installation Procedure

1. Copy the compress file mtd80x-linux-2.4.x.tgz to /tmp directory,

mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
cp /mnt/floppy/linux-2.4.x/mtd80x-linux-2.4.x.tgz /tmp

2. Uncompress the file

cd /tmp
tar -zxvf mtd80x-linux-2.4.x.tgz

3. Make network adapter driver modules

touch *
make clean

*Under some distribution, such as SuSe 7.2 and BluePoint 2.0, there is no version.h.
You have to run "make config" or "make menuconfig" at /usr/src/linux to create it.

**If you are using Mandrake 8.0 and you have problems when insmod the dirver, please
remove "-DMODVERSIONS" option from makefile.

***On SMP system, the driver may NOT work well. The bug will be fixed in the future.

4. Insert network adapter driver modules

insmod pciscan.o
insmod mtd80x.o

5. Bind your card to an IP address

ifconfig eth0 {IPADDR} netmask {NETMASK}

6. Now, you should be able to ping local network.

*Every time you reboot the system, you must execute step 4 and step 5
again to bind your card.

This driver is tested with the Distribution.

RedHat 7.1/7.2
Mandrake 8.0/8.1
Slackware 8.0
SuSe 7.2
RedFlag 2.4
Caldera 3.0
