RE: [uCsimm]Question from a newbie. Lan device doesn't work.

I have an old uCsimm board (uC68EZ328-2E8L16 00:50:C2:03:61:C1) and it
worked fine with the version from the CD. I upgraded with the
latest patch (pre7) and got the same message as you do ('cs89x0.c: No
CrystalLan device found.').

By using the old version of the Ethernet driver
(/opt/uClinux/linux/driver/net/uCcs8900.c) and recompiled the kernel it
worked fine again.

In your case it is perhaps the other way around. You have a new uCsimm and
old cs8900 driver, so it might help to use the pre7 patch.
