MultiMac

New MultiMac NIC driver package (20161008) released

Arca Noae is pleased to announce the immediate availability of a new release of our MultiMac NIC driver package.

This release is a refresh of the 20161005 package. There was a problem in the system library which affected all drivers in the package. If you previously installed the 20161005 package, you are strongly encouraged to download and install this package to update your drivers.

This package is just a refresh of the 20161005 release so the information for that release is the same for this one and is repeated here:

  • An updated E1000B driver.
  • An updated MMALE driver.
  • An updated MMLEM driver.
  • An updated MMRE driver.
  • An updated MMAE driver.
  • An updated MMALC driver.
  • A new MMIGB driver for older Intel NICs.
  • A new MMSK driver for SysKonnect SK-NET NICs.
  • All the other drivers are not changed at all. In fact, they are the same files that were distributed in the last release simply copied into this current release for convenience.

Note that when you install this package, four of the drivers are marked as untested (MMAE, MMALC, MMIGB, MMSK) and are not automatically selected for installation. This means that the developer does not have the hardware to test these drivers and could not get someone to test them. If you want to use these drivers, you must select them on the packages page of the installer. If you use one of these four drivers and would like to become the official tester for it, please see the info section of the .txt file for the driver (mmae.txt for example) after installation, or the ReadMe on the wiki.

As always, please read the .txt file that comes with each driver and also provided on the wiki. If you have problems with any of the drivers in this release, please read the Debugging Guide in the wiki first. If your problem cannot be resolved with the Debugging Guide, then the problem should be reported to the ticketing system. Simply log in with your Arca Noae credentials, select MultiMac from the list of projects, and open a ticket.
