Re: Problem in installation


from your good description of the problem it seems to me that we had a
related problem here once when connecting two machines back-to-back.
The problem is that the driver makes some incorrect assumptions about the
new VCI number being allocated.

Uwe Dannowski fixed this in a preliminary alpha 0.3 release which is not
contained on the official website yet. I'd suggest to ask him,
( ; Guido Vattrodt (
since he encountered the same problem I think). You can also do it yourself,
see the ENI driver for a VCI good allocation strategy.
