HME(4)			 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			HME(4)

     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.conf(5):


     The hme driver supports Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ “Happy Meal
     Ethernet” Fast Ethernet interfaces.

     All controllers supported by the hme driver have TCP checksum offload
     capability for both receive and transmit, support for the reception and
     transmission of extended frames for vlan(4) and a 128-bit multicast hash

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

     Cards supported by the hme driver include:

     ·	 Sun PCI SunSwift Adapter (“SUNW,hme”)
     ·	 Sun SBus SunSwift Adapter (“hme” and “SUNW,hme”)
     ·	 Sun PCI Sun100BaseT Adapter 2.0 (“SUNW,hme”)
     ·	 Sun SBus Sun100BaseT 2.0 (“SUNW,hme”)
     ·	 Sun PCI Quad FastEthernet Controller (“SUNW,qfe”)
     ·	 Sun SBus Quad FastEthernet Controller (“SUNW,qfe”)

     On sparc64 the hme driver respects the local-mac-address? system configu‐
     ration 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
     hme 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 ver‐
     sions on boards equipped with more than one Ethernet interface and all
     add-on cards except the single-port SBus versions.

     (FEPS) User's Guide, April 1996,

     The hme driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.5.  The first FreeBSD version
     to include it was FreeBSD 5.0.

     The hme driver was written by Paul Kranenburg ⟨pk@NetBSD.org⟩.
