The installation program doesn't recognize bcm5700.
After installed RC2, kudzu couldn't recognize bcm5700 also.
However, I can manually load bcm5700.o driver and It worked fine. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RC2
2. Run kudzu
3. Kudzu will not recognize bcm5700

Actual Results:  Kudzu did not recognize bcm5700

Expected Results:  Kudzu should recognize bcm5700 and allow for its

Here is the info from /proc/pci, so that you have the PCI IDs...

Bus  3, device   8, function  0:
    Ethernet controller: PCI device 14e4:1644 (BROADCOM Corporation) (rev 16).
      IRQ 11.
      Master Capable.  Latency=32.  Min Gnt=64.
      Non-prefetchable 64 bit memory at 0xfea00000 [0xfea0ffff].

Please file bugs against the correct product.
(i.e., don't file RC2 bugs against the public beta.)

In any case, this *should* currently work. What does the /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
look like?

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-03-06 21:14:10 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-07 20:13:41 UTC
I've tried this with the provided card; it worked OK once I booted a
kernel with the correct module. What exact version of kudzu do you have
installed, and what does your /etc/sysconfig/hwconf look like?

Is the bcm5700 listed in your /usr/share/kudzu/pcitable?

What kernel are you running?

I'm running on 2.4.2-0.1.19 kernel. This is a single processor server.

Comment 11 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-07 21:07:14 UTC
What happens if you remove the broadcom entry from /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
and re-run kudzu?

Comment 12 Danny Trinh 2001-03-08 15:26:50 UTC
After I remove the broadcom entry from /etc/sysconfig/hwconf, kudzu is working.

Comment 13 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-08 15:40:45 UTC
What kernel was running on this machine the first time it was installed/kudzu
was run?

Basically, all I can guess that happened is that when kudzu first saw the
broadcom card, it didn't find the bcm5700 module for it, so it ignored it.

Just tested with today's tree; it works OK.

The bits to recognize it in the installer have been committed to CVS; will
be in the next anaconda build.
