ViaRhine Snow Leopard Ready 64-bits

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

As I was not able to find ViaRhine compiled to run in 64bits I re-compiled it from source.

 

So it seems to run fine but don't hesitate to complain in this post.

 

All credit to pinxue.

This driver is under developing. The file published here is for your tasting, you should be aware that this driver is buggy and maybe crash your system, it is on your own risk!

 

The via rhine chip information is analyzed from linux driver (2.6.14). I have tried to request a datasheet from via but none responsed.

But everyone with a via rhine use it !

 

Please, if it works for you, be nice just let a post here ! :thumbsup_anim:

This problem is more motherboard/cpu combination related; not really a problem of the ethernet driver.

You could search for "ethernet drop" in this forum...

 

Solution is use cpus=1 or use a usb->ethernet adaptator.

 

PS: I've review this forum and other a long time so look specifically for your motherboard but probably there is no other solution.

EDIT: yup, that works, only thing is I lose one of the cores. . .I will investigate further
