QFE card on a Netra T1

Has anyone had any luck getting a QFE card to work on a Netra T1? I've tried compiling a kernel with the Happy Meal driver, the GEM driver, and the QFE driver (and various combinations of these) and I can either make the card not recognized at all or when it is recognized it hard locks the box with no messages. I've googled about and searched the Gentoo forums and there is some references to this problem but no solutions (at least non that worked for me). This is for a 2.4 kernel.

Thanks, Philip

Hi Phil,

There are a few different QFE cards. Your best bet for identifying which one you
have is likey to install sys-apps/pciutils and run lspci. It will likely show up
with a pci-pci bridge, then 4 ethernet pci devices below it. You should be able
to determine the driver you need from that information.

It clearly lists the card as 4 Happy Meal (HME) devices. This should work fine
with the normal HME driver. If you get an error inserting the module, maybe that
would give more info.

When I compile in the HME driver it does find the card and all that.
Problem is when anything tries to send anything to the card it hard
locks the system with no messages.

If you turn off your syslog daemon before you do this, do you see anything
on the serial console when the system hard locks?

It locks during the "boot" process. After the ethernet interfaces come
up the next thing that loads is a daemon that accesses the network.
Bingo! Locked up. No more data to the serial console. I could try
arranging the config so that the gateway is on the internal netra ports,
so that the boot process would finish. Then try this. I'll let you
know how that goes.

Thanks, Philip
