Networking in Linux/sparc64 under qemu...

... is also possible. The bulit-in ne2k-pci network card doesn't work, but hey there is an even faster virtio-net alternative. At the OpenBIOS "ok" prompt, before the "boot" command in the previous post, type

cd /pci@1fe,0/pci1af4,1000
0 encode-int " interrupts" property
device-end

Will send this patch upstream as soon as we clear whether "0" is allowed for the "interrupts" property.

Hi, I'm trying hard to get an sparc32 up and running with solaris <=2.6, and I'm having trouble with adding a second NIC.

Is there a way to do it?

Thankz a lot!!!!
