MCP73 Ethernet not supported by forcedeth module
I don't know about staying with 2.6.18,
but I've got etch installed & working with
this nvidia chipset and a 2.6.23 kernel
Another easy possibility is to install a
2.6.24 kernel from the "Etch and a half"

Recently I've got a mainboard with MCP73 chipset (don't have model info,
however I can provide it later if required) and would like to use
onboard network card. I have installed 2.6.18-6 and seems it's forcedeth
module doesn't support this chipset. The following link was very helpful:
however, driver mentioned in this thread also didn't work.
I have downloaded kernel sources starting from 2.6.21 up to 2.6.25 and
found that this chipset is supported in 2.6.23 and above. I tried to
compile forcedeth.c found in 2.6.23 according to instructions found in
above thread but got compile time errors which means this driver is not
compatible with my kernel headers.
I don't like to change my kernel, I'd like to build the correct version
of forcedeth.c for my instock kernel, but I can't find any.
Is there any backported forcedeth.c driver for 2.6.18-6 kernel which
supports MCP73 chipset?
Thanks in advance,
