Today had a number of interesting things happen.
First, the total solar
Next, it's the first day of summer
solstice. Then, we have Mars making a quick pass near
earth. And finally, it is the 42nd
day since the passing
of Douglas Adams.
What a strange set of coincidences.
Damn those LANCE ethernet ports. You should take
this to understand that I have not yet gotten "theseus"
working properly yet; runs Solaris 8 like a champ, but so
far I'm not able to talk to the ethernet port, in either
32-bit or 64-bit mode (as a side point, if you have a CG3
right now, don't plan on using it under 64-bit Solaris 8;
there's a CG6 driver, but no CG3...and yes, I know about the
deadlock problem with Ultra-1s less that 200 MHz in 64-bit
mode, don't worry). The interface is configured correctly,
but there's no link light on the hub. Grr. Surprisingly, I'm
not getting the incessant "le0: link down or cable problem?"
messages. I poked around eBay a bit, and found a
10/100 Sun Swift card for about $70, but I'd really rather
get le0 working properly.
