The file PNT.TAR contains the archive of all the files required to
build the driver.o file. The features added from the previous
version of the AMD SCO drivers and instructions on their usage are:
- Modifications due to a warning from idistributed routine on
some platforms. Changed the space.h file and altered the installation procedure.
- Changed Space.c file to allow autonegotiation as the default mode.
- Changed pnt-pci file to increase device number range to 24.
- 96bit IPG
- Override auto-negotiation and automatic network port selection
via keywords provided in space.c
- To select a connecting medium, make only one variable from AUI,
(internal) 10BaseT, or MII equal to '1'. If AUI, 10BaseT, and
MII are all '0', then automatic port selection is activated.
Only the MII port is supported on the IBM Netfinity 5500 and
this port will be selected if automatic port selection is enabled.
- To select 100 Mbits speed, set the variable SPEED100 to '1'
in the space.c file. Set it to '0' to select 10 Mbits speed.
- To select full duplex mode, set FULLDUP to '1' in the space.c
file. Set FULLDUP to '0' for half duplex mode.
- LED programming via keyword provided in space.h
- The LED keyword is provided for knowledgeable users who want to
override the default settings. If the user provides specific
values for the LEDs in the driver's space.h file, then these
values override the factory default values. The user specified
values are then reflected by the adapter's LEDs.
Go to the directory /etc/conf/pack.d/pnt/ in the system where
the pnt driver config files are located. The space.h files
contain the driver LED values. If the values are all 0xFFFFFFFF
then the driver takes the default LED values from the EEPROM.
The user can edit the space.h file to reflect the desired LED
values. After the change is made, link the kernel by the command
Reboot and when the system comes up the new LED value is reflected by the LEDs.
