sk98lin and jumbo frames

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Jack Snodgrass, Sep 6, 2006.

  1. Everything I've read about the sk98lin driver
    and my 3C940 ethernet device ( onboard Lan )
    says that it supports a 9000 ( or 9014 byte ) MTU.

    if I do
    ifconfig eth0 down
    ifconfig eth0 mtu 9000 ( or 9014 )
    I get an error. I can do
    ifconfig eth0 mtu 1500
    and that works...

    The sk98lin driver code doesn't say anything
    about large MTUs. 9000 and 9014 don't seem to
    be listed in the source any where.

    I've looked at the 3c2000 driver ( looks like
    the sk98lin code ) from asus and I've looked at
    the latest linux kernel code.

    Does anyone know if the sk98lin driver really
    supports a large MTU?

  2. Yes it does.

    eth11 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:5A:9C:66:FC
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

    0000:01:03.0 Ethernet controller: Syskonnect (Schneider & Koch) SK-98xx V2.0
    Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (rev 19)

    No proof that eth11 is 0000:01:03.0, you just have to believe me :)

    Any reason why you don't use skge? IMHO sk98lin is really buggy.
