Hi Matthew,

Please have a look at messages #46 and #47. It might be that you have the same hardware version that makes the known trouble. You might want to try the provided enabler code and compare your MAC address against the 2 listed in the above threads.

Hi Jochen,

thanks for the code, but I am still stuck.  I tried your code (with some help compiling provided by my UNIX SA ;-)) and I get core dumps for any of the tried options with both the old enabler code and the new enabler code.  Below is /var/log/messages and my attempt with the new code.  It does look like my MAC address is within the problem range.
