2008-12-17 04:39:16     ethtool - operation not supported

Hi,

 

we are trying to change PHY registers and thought that ethtool would do what we want.

 

I have incorporated ethtool into the kernel build but it does not run.

 

Al I get is:

 

root:/> ethtool -i eth0

Cannot get driver information: Operation not supported

root:/> ethtool -g eth0

Ring parameters for eth0:

Cannot get device ring settings: Operation not supported

 

 

All other commands are the same.

 

What else do i need to configure or install to get it working?

 

Or are are there instructions/how-tos on installing it?

 

Thanks,

 

Ian Davidson

the last release didnt support ethtool.  some support has been added to trunk, but there's more to do.  you can follow the tracker item.

i'm pretty sure it all filters down to the same code in the kernel.  so no.
