I want to have a lot of cipe devices.
however after i have set up cixcb0 to cixcb5 it doesn't want to allocate any
cixcb: failed to allocate device 6
as long i have less than 6 devices there's no problem make a device called
for instance cixcb52
the other computer complains about the same after only two cipe devices.
I'm using Linux-2.4.20 with cipeX-1.5.4-1.10 (on debian 3.0)
is there any adjustable limit for interfaces somewehre in the kernel.
I've heard that cipe comes hardcoded with a limit of 100 devices. that would
i've looked in 'make menuconfig' in 'Networking Options' and 'Network device
support' for anything like this.
I didn't yet start looking through the kernel sources, and wouldn't know
where to start anyway ;-))
Does anyone know how to get more devices?
