To revisit an ongoing issue, we need an ethernet driver for the integrated ethernet controller on the Vega. We are using the Linux platform.
It is apparent that ST has something in hand - the Vega programmers manual states
"The usage of the Vega internal MAC is very restricted and tested only under the Linux operating system.."
We are considering writing our own driver, but it would be very useful to have ST's current driver (even in pre-release form) as a starting place.
The other thing that gives pause is the next two sentences in the manual where it says
"Any other functional configuration is not guaranteed by ST.
Problem that may occur is a file transfer corruption."
Is the Vega ethernet controller silicon solid, or is the delay in releasing the driver in part because of incomplete functionality?
