The most widely ported operating system in the world:
>Release:        NetBSD-1.4_ALPHA 1999-04-10
System: NetBSD 1.4_ALPHA NetBSD 1.4_ALPHA (7THSUN) #2: Sun Apr 11 03:48:44 EDT 1999 sparc

    The qe driver for the sbus quad ethernet card doesn't appear to work.
    The interfaces configure ok, but as soon as one tries to transmit or
    receive a packet, you get a receive interrupt error (on transmission)
    or a transmit interrupt error (on on reception).
    ifconfig qe0 with an address to bring the interface up
    transmit or receive a packet
    Not known at this time. Could it be as simple as the transmit and receive
    interrupts being reversed? We probably need to talk to whomever coded and
    tested this driver.
