Description Jeff Shao 2000-01-05 16:51:50 UTC
bigmac ethernet doesn't work on Sparc 5, 4, or classic.

it gives error:

eth1: link down, cable problem?

the driver loads fine, insmod sees it.. but somehow, it's not recognizing
the rj45 port.

Known problem, unfortunately I have no such cards to even work on
a fix.  The last time I had access to such a card was 3 years ago.
