IIRC, we define the root of our network stack modules "names" in hearders/private/net/net_module.h. Except when it build for Haiku, it's "obos_network". Do you build the userland stack modules for haiku target? BTW, maybe we could just define this root always to "haiku_network",whatvever the target, until we reach R1? Another issue could be in the way we try to open every /dev/net/*/* from the ethernet interface module. Several R5/BONE drivers wrongly allow being opened several times... - Philippe PS: sadly I was offline all the week-end while you guys were hardworking on the netstack. So far, I agree on what was discussed on the roadmap. But stay tune, I could maybe have some points to share... and eventually a (small) task to applied for.
