Re: Problem loading PCA-200E driver
Reminder: The FORE PCA-200E host adapter is distributed as two different
products. The PCA-200EPC ships along with a CD, containing drivers for
Windoze95, WindozeNT, and Netware. Whereas the PCA-200EUX ships with
drivers for Unix (including AIX, Irix, Solaris, SunOS, and HP-UX).
You have obviously received the PCA-200EPC product package. I just checked
our Windows/Netware CD (part number SFTW0075-03) and sure enough, the .bin
files are merely ~22KB in size, as you reported.
Furthermore, the CD that currently gets shipped with the PCA-200EUX
-rw-r--r-- 0/121 39800 Apr 29 11:21 1997 FOREatm/root/etc/fore/pca200e.bin
within the /Sun/SunOS5/SUNOS5_PCA_4.1.0.TAR file ...which isn't quite 42KB.!?.
Conclusion: When installing the Linux PCA-200E driver forget about using
whatever CD came with the card. Instead, just always use:
Hope this helps.
