I see no problem to have a bounty for this driver port, we had already success with another one but if mensys feels free to take over and make a project for it then all is fine. So how is the progress on it? Contract is on the way and we can see some work soon?

Heya,

a bit of update on this:
During todays edition of my frequent lunch chats with Rodrick Klein, I was told that Mensys has successfully finished the development phase of the new Intel (wired) NIC driver (the one in question here). Mensys aims to enter a public beta testing phase for the new driver starting within this week by releasing the driver "Intel e1000e" (e1000e.os2) to the eCS Beta Zone.

An official announcement with an according link and information to test volunteers will follow.

Cheers,
Thomas

Thomas, do you know if the testing phase started?

Hi Martin

People on the ecSTestTeam received a post about this recently. Just to update everbody on the "state of play" here is the email:-

Hello,

As promised at Warpstock 2010 in Trier. A new Intel NIC driver would be
coming out. This is based on the source code of e1000e.

It supports the following chipsets:
http://www.os2world.com/content/view/19642/71/

Attached is e1000e.ziq  rename it to e1000e.zip.

Let me know if the driver works. You don't have to open tickets.

One outstanding is that the NIC driver in some cases does not get a
DHCP lease this has been reported.
We have 2 systems on which it works so far here.

If it does not work, it could hang on netbind.exe or you have an error
in lantran.log.
If it does not work send the file \ecs\install\rsp\rawdata.000 to me
and lantran.log.
Then I will pass it along to the company developing this NIC driver.

Please don't distribute this driver beyond the this group as first some
more testing is needed.

Roderick


So, looks like it is not quite ready for a public test yet.

Regards

Pete

Mensys has announced their interest on claiming this bounty.

The binaries are available for download at: http://svn.ecomstation.nl/multimac
The source code is also posted on that site.

Mensys had requested that the founds claimed will be donated back to the "Eclipse.org Standard Windowing Toolkit (SWT) OS/2 Port" bounty.

Any feedback from the community is welcome in this thread. I will be closing the bounty and moving the funds in two weeks.

Thanks

  I believe they are doing a pretty good job on updating NIC drivers.

  BTW... any chance of Intel 82579 being supported by e1000 on eCS? It seems it'll be present on my new motherboard and Linux e1000 seems to support it already, but it is not listed on eCS's e1000 wiki. :/

The e1000 driver for eCS is pretty easy to build - I'd imagine it would be fairly easy to merge in support for newer chipsets from the Linux module.  When you get your board, if it doesn't work, I'll try take a look for you if nobody else steps up.
