Thanks Wilhelm,

Presently, I don't use generic driver, but e1000e driver.

Best regards

Hallo Vincent,

depending on the used Ethernet device the "original" EtherCAT master run's under recent kernels.

If one uses the generic NIC-driver any recent kernel should be supported. For other NIC interfaces have a look in the "devices"
directory. There you will find the patched NIC modules for the different kernel versions.

Best regard Wilhelm
