Are you using the Altera Triple Speed MAC component in your SOPC builder? If not, you can get rid of this error by deselecting the altera triple speed ethernet support under device drivers -> network device support -> ethernet (10 or 100mbit) in the Kernel Settings for uClinux. You should also be able to find whichever ethernet chip your board uses and turn that option on to activate the ethernet.

Dear Mokango.  

 

Thanks for your reply.  

 

1) My Kernel(linux2.6) version is 2.6.30.  

2) use the Altera Triple Speed Mac in SOPC builder on DE2_115 board  

3) ALT_TSE turn on -> make menuconfig NET_DEV1000 on uClinux-dist 

 

However, when booting kernel has many error.  

altera_tse.o --- faild ...  

 

I think that kernel 2.6.30 of altera_tse.c or altera_tse.h has error codes.  

I want to altera_tse.c , altera_tse.h.  

 

Please help me your advice.  

 

regards,  

Ted.

Is updating to the latest kernel an option? Many bugs were fixed in that driver since 2.6.30.
