subinpthomas: Beginner in VxWorks Driver Development

I am a beginner in VxWorks and I am trying to implement a driver for the D-Link Fast Ethernet Card DFE 530TX which uses the VT86C100A chip as part of my Academic Career. I couldn't find any helpful information on this yet. Can anyone give me some help?

which version of VxW are you using? The Linux one or the older 5.x?

Review another network driver and how it is used within a BSP.
You can use this as the basis for your own. Make sure you pay attention to the #def related to its inclusion and make your own for the driver.

If you are looking for register/chip details of the VT86, you will need to look at its data sheet. That's really where the fun is.

There is NO linux based VxWorks. Next you'll say there is Windows based linux. :-)

You're correct but many people interchange VxW for any Wind River product.

I didn't mean to say windows based vxworks.. I meant that for tornado.. Sorry..
