New MultiMac NIC driver package (20161204) released

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

This package contains rebuilt drivers to incorporate some SMP related fixes in the system libraries. Even though the actual driver code has not been changed in any of the drivers, all the drivers were rebuilt to incorporate the new system libraries. All of the 32 bit drivers are affected.

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

This driver package is available for download from the Arca Noae website as part of your Arca Noae OS/2 & eCS drivers and software package subscription. Please log into your account in order to access your software.

If you haven’t yet purchased a software subscription, this is a great reason to do so now.

More information about the MultiMac NIC drivers may be found in the wiki.
