i386, D-Link Via Rhine card
I've just upgraded my kernel from -current about two weeks old to todays
sup. I'm using a ViaRhine D-Link ethernet card (vr0) connected to either
a 10 base T HUB or via a crosslink cable to an Intel Ether Express (fxp0)
card. Currently it's connected to the 10 base T hub. Since it's changing,
I need to rely on media autosensing.
With the new kernel the card doesn't recognize the 10 base T connection, medi
is set to "none". When I use ifconfig to force it into 10baseT, the media
shown by ifconfig changes, but the card still does not work.
Try to use above mentioned hardware with todays current.
