Description ziegs 2005-08-08 14:33:47 UTC
I've attached an ebuild for the kernel module of nvidia's nforce onboard NIC. 
The NIC is on almost every nForce chipset on the market right now, and while the
forcedeth module works, I (and others) find the proprietary driver to be more
stable and faster (it will run at 1000baseT, forcedeth is stuck at 100).

Not sure where it should be filed.  net-misc/nvnet perhaps?

Ebuild for nvnet kernel module.

I've only tested this on an amd64 system, but it should work on x86 too.  if
someone can confirm that it'd be swell.
Comment 3 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-08 17:32:39 UTC
Since this module was removed from portage in the past, and nvidia are actively
contributing to forcedeth at the same time as developing nvnet, I'd prefer that
this didn't get added right now. (1000base is supported, but you might have to
be running a recent kernel)

Still, I'll leave this open for now, assuming it is if some benefit to users :)

Comment 5 BigBug 2006-01-18 18:20:26 UTC
but _right_now_ forcedeth on some machine isn't working _at_all_

maybe nvnet removed from portage too fast?

I searched, but I'm unable to find the bug report which you filed about this problem with forcedeth. Can you point me in the right direction? :)
