Anyone Had Any Experience w/Wireless Card On SPARC???
Has anyone ever tried using a Wireless Card under Linux running on a computer with a Sun SPARC processor?
I decided to toy around with this to see if I could get anything to happen. I have a card with a Realtek RTL8185 chip, and tried compiling the driver and using it. The light on the card comes on (flashing), but it aways gives a signal strength of "0/100" and I get this message "no more TX desc" again and again and again on the console. What does that mean?
I also noticed that in order to compile the driver, I had to comment out (heard this on some post on another forum about a compile error I had been getting) a line referencing "rdtsc_rtl" routine, which looks to have been defined with some bit of X86 assembler ("rdtsc" was the only opcode.).
Do _any_ wireless cards work on (GNU/)Linux under SPARC? If so, what are they?
P.S. The distribution I'm using is Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.4.
