Re: New Tulip driver does not work



Chris,

I do have /etc/hostname.dc0 which specifies the same line as hostname.mx0 i.e.
dhcp NONE NONE NONE, I
also get ifconfig BAD VALUE NONE, etc. even with the mx0 but it works.

I get the following messages :

Jan  8 10:45:46 Gabriel dhclient: Listening on
BPF/dc0/00:80:c6:f7:e5:6c/unattached
Jan  8 10:45:46 Gabriel dhclient: Sending on
BPF/dc0/00:80:c6:f7:e5:6c/unattached
Jan  8 10:45:46 Gabriel dhclient: Sending on   Socket/fallback/fallback-net
Jan  8 10:45:46 Gabriel dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on dc0 to 255.255.255.255 port
67
Jan  8 10:45:51 Gabriel last message repeated 2 times

What else should I be looking for ?
