after some pause last year during which haiku would not boot on my smp pc, things are again all smooth and rosy in supermicro P3TDDE land. as a result i’m very happy, and equally grateful. thanks, haiku team!
now, there’s one bit of hw that still does not work here, and it’s the intel 82559 10/100 ethernet chip that comes on that mobo. i’m aware of Hugo’s success with freeBSD net-driver compatibility layer, so here’s my question re that:
is there a known good haiku port of the freebsd driver for said chip? if not, where do i start with trying to get it to work under Hugo’s layer? no, i’m not a driver developer, but i don’t mind rolling up my sleeves and getting my hands dirty when needed.
on an unrelated note, what’s the current state with building haiku with gcc4? i noticed some gcc4.1.2-related comments in the repo, but assuming i co’ed the the repo today under osx, what would be my chances for a successful gcc4.0.1 cross-compile? any caveats one should be aware of?
thanks again, and best regards!
