I'm using the gem driver on my PowerMac G4 Dual Processor
500MHz, and the Ethernet media detection doesn't seem to work anymore.
If I leave the media type at the default of "autoselect", ifconfig gem0
says "media: Ethernet autoselect (none)" and the network doesn't work.
If I manually set the media type with "ifconfig gem0 media 100basetx
mediaopt full-duplex", it starts to work. It does keep working if I
then set it back to "media autoselect".
It's plugged in to a 10/100 switch, btw.
The previous kernel I was using, 1.5ZC from May 11, works
