Description of problem:
Broadcom has updated drivers on their website (www.broadcom.com) that support
currently shipping Gig. Ethernet chipsets. The HP xw4100 is one such machine
which is unsupported under the current beta's kernel(s). Neither the standard
nor "BOOT" kernels have support.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attempt to load the tg3 driver on an HP xw4100 (chipset not supported)
There may be a licensing issue, but it looks as though RH and Broadcom have
worked together in the past, so I'll leave this up to the folks as RH.
Please change the bug summary to indicate _what_ chipset support is missing from
Does HP xw4100 include BCM5705? BCM5782?
My particular chipset is the BCM5782.
