Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 436686
tg3.c does not build on sparc with > 2.6.18-53.el5
Last modified: 2009-01-20 15:21:12 EST
Description of problem:
linux-2.6-net-tg3-update-to-driver-version-3-76.patch adds a piece of code that
calls pci_device_to_OF_node, however that is NOT available in the sparc or
sparc64 code in the 188.8.131.52.el5 kernel.
It looks like pci_device_to_OF_node is available in sparc on newer kernel kernel
Inclusion of this patch is the problem.
