Actually I spent the last days trying several eepro100 drivers as the one I
was using had problems on some of the cards we had at VA, and the eepro
driver from intel stopped functioning on my machine after less than 5mn.
Dragan Stancevic look at the driver and its output and found that it was
sending undocumented/non existing commands to the card and that the reported
output was bad because they had a bug in their debugging code :-)
I ended up getting an updated version of Andrey V. Savochkin's version of
the driver at ftp://ftp.sw.com.sg/pub/Linux/people/saw/kernel/v2.2/, and
it's been working ok so far (at least, it works on all the machines I've
tried, which wasn't true of the earlier version I had).
BTW, one can ignore the "no more resources" syslog output, it's just
informational and the driver handles it properly.
