Seems still not to work.

The dmfe driver for the network interfaces does not work at all, and the tulip driver is very slow and produces exclusively errors.

Has anyone had more luck than me with this?

Code:
eth1      Protokoll:Ethernet  Hardware Adresse 08:00:20:FE:0D:B8 
          inet Adresse:10.0.0.254  Bcast:10.255.255.255  Maske:255.0.0.0
          inet6 Adresse: fe80::a00:20ff:fefe:db8/64 Gültigkeitsbereich:Verbindung
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:43836 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:19 errors:48451 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:48451
          Kollisionen:0 Sendewarteschlangenlänge:1000
          RX bytes:5351502 (5.1 Mb)  TX bytes:1286 (1.2 Kb)
          Interrupt:9

The errors aren't completely true, btw, most of those packets are sent, only the statistics are wrong. But not all, there is really a problem behind all this.

And that in the kernel log every 10 seconds or so:
Code:
Kernel unaligned access at TPC[5cd02c] ip_rcv+0xc8/0x548
Kernel unaligned access at TPC[51f924] ip_fast_csum+0xc/0x80
Kernel unaligned access at TPC[51f928] ip_fast_csum+0x10/0x80
Kernel unaligned access at TPC[51f92c] ip_fast_csum+0x14/0x80
Kernel unaligned access at TPC[51f934] ip_fast_csum+0x1c/0x80

After 3 days of struggling with this (and after I discovered I can't downgrade my system to 2006.1), I finally got it to work, with the newest kernel (2.6.21-gentoo-r3) and using the old modprobe tulip options=11,14 again.

Yeah the dmfe module as-is in the kernel doesn't work for those.
I've got the best luck by using davicom's own source from their site but then that one doesn't handle openprom mac addresses at all so all the interfaces will have their mac at zero (patching it to support it is simple though).
Also there's no ebuild for this so you'll have to work your way towards it.

Galahad,

where did you find documentation on the options for the tulip driver?

nowhere :)

I just used the same options as on the 2.4 kernel, which must be documented somewhere I think.
