Device Performance Enhancements
Hi, I'm working with Nanomind in Eclipse and I have some problems .Currently I added the libraries Nanomind and libraries Arm, but the errors continue. These are the errors that I have currently. You have any idea what library I should add or do to make it work.
List of errors:

i hope this is the right place to ask....
i'm try to use bridge on kernel 2.6.30 for the following reason:

XIMETA (ndas) support 
at ximeta.com there are ancient linux driver files for ndas technology. ndas are network enclosures/HD that connect your harddrives to the network via ethernet. they do not use tcp/ip and have their own protocol (lpx) that ximeta owns. ximeta is not willing to update the drivers on the website. I have digged around for months trying to help people stuck with ndas devices. most of them are dual booting with windows to get around the problem but why should us mighty linux users have to settle for this work around?
We strongly encourage all hardware vendors to make their programming guides and register specifications publicly available. The following documentation is available for free public download.

Linux Kernel Ethernet
This page documents Ethernet drivers on the Linux kernel. Typically Ethernet drivers are documented through the Documentation/ section of the kernel. This page is for those drivers that choose to document themselves through a wiki rather than plain text ASCII files. This follows the tradition of documentation followed by the wireless subsystem .
Here is the list of our wiki-documented Ethernet drivers. alx - Qualcomm Atheros (QCA) Ethernet driver.
RPM commands 
RPM package is a powerful utility to manage the software in all major Linux distributions. RPMs can be used to,
- Install packages
- Remove packages
- Upgrade packages
- Verify packages
Here are some useful command to manage RPM packages,

/etc/net is a new way to configure networks. It is designed to let you use all modern Linux network technologies in a convenient way. The best way to learn /etc/net is to look at examples, which I will try to provide for most technologies mentioned at LinuxNet pages.
You can find more information at the project's home page  and freshmeat page .
Q: Why can I ping an IP address when the interface is down?
A: Linux uses a "host based" addressing model, IP addresses are owned by the host, not individual interfaces. So as long as the IP address is configured to some interface, we will accept packets destinated to that IP address as our's.
