Hello,

when trying to install from livecd (gentoo-alpha-2004.0-20040313) on a alphastation 255/300 I have some problems activating the network card.

It is correctly recognised as

eth0: Digital DC21040 Tulip rev 36 at 0x8400, ..., IRQ 15

When using dhcp or "ifconfig up" the light for the link on my switch wents of and I am not able to reach the network (ping).
With "ifconfig down" the switch shows a link again.

dmesg shows "eth0: no link beat found".

The card works well under Tru64 4.0f.
I know, these chips had some problems with autonegotiation and I tried to set the speed fix in SRM without any luck.

Did anybody experience similar problems?

Thanks in advance

Karlheinz

You might try modprobe de4x5 instead of tulip
