hme - Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Ethernet interfaces device driver


To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file:
device miibus device hme

Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf5:



The driver supports Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Fast Ethernet interfaces.


The driver supports the on-board Ethernet interfaces of many Sun UltraSPARC workstation and server models.

Cards supported by the driver include:


On sparc64 the driver respects the local-mac-address? system configuration variable which can be set in the Open Firmware boot monitor using the setenv command or by eeprom(8). If set to ``false '' (the default), the driver will use the system's default MAC address for all of its devices. If set to ``true '' the unique MAC address of each interface is used if present rather than the system's default MAC address.

Supported interfaces having their own MAC address include on-board versions on boards equipped with more than one Ethernet interface and all add-on cards except the single-port SBus versions.
