Description of problem:
the broadcom GigaBit BCM 5700 is installed with tigon tg3.ko but hangs
the complete network process.
I installed the sources from BroadCom (bcm5700-7.1.22) but when
compiling, I have the following error:
*** warning: "genapic" undefined"
and when testing with "insmod bcm5700.ko":
insmod: error inserting 'bcm5700.ko": -1 Unknown symobol in module
So how should Fedora recognize my BCM5700 card ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install linux bcm5700-7.1.22.tar.gz sources
3. insmod bcm5700.ko
tg3 should work but please file a separate bug about that
the bcm5700 driver not working is NOTOURBUG...
Created attachment 99985 [details]
log file of DELL PowerEdge 2550
I do insist; tg3 looks as if it works (it is load vis insmod, ifconfig
marks eth1 as UP, but no ping to the another machine. I have two
ethernet cards (e100 and bcm5700).
* When e100 is loaded, everything is OK
* When tg3 is loaded, no net
* When e100 and tg3 are loaded, non net. A t that time, I do a
'ifcongig eth1 down' and everything is OK
note: I posted an message.log file which shows the init of th Dell
PowerEdge 2550. (there's also an agpart-serverworks error (-22), which
makes my Xwindows looks like a 640x480 vga, but for a server, this is
