Description Adrian Reber 2008-03-15 11:31:49 UTC
On JS20/JS21 (ppc64) with SLOF-1.4.0-0
(http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/power/pa-slof/) anaconda no longer detects
the network card correctly. It used to work in Fedora 8.

Anaconda says "no driver found" and selecting the tg3 driver manually does not help.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-16 17:09:08 UTC
Does udev normally work for getting the module loaded?

Comment 2 Adrian Reber 2008-03-16 21:03:43 UTC
It is a PCI card:

02:04.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5780S Gigabit
Ethernet (rev 10)
02:04.1 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5780S Gigabit
Ethernet (rev 10)

This seems to be a problem with the kernel. I just built a 2.6.25-rc5 with the
driver built-in and I get following error:

tg3.c:v3.87 (December 20, 2007)
PCI: Device 0001:02:04.0 not available because of resource collisions
tg3: Cannot enable PCI device, aborting.
tg3: probe of 0001:02:04.0 failed with error -22
PCI: Device 0001:02:04.1 not available because of resource collisions
tg3: Cannot enable PCI device, aborting.
tg3: probe of 0001:02:04.1 failed with error -22

So this is probably not an anaconda bug.

What kernel version was used for that test? 

Comment 4 Adrian Reber 2008-03-18 18:03:42 UTC
As mentioned above: 2.6.25-rc5

Concerning this I already received an answer from Nathan Lynch and he wrote:

Yes, this is a known issue... Ben and I have looked at it some, but no
fix yet.  According to a git bisect the change that caused it is "Merge
PCI resource allocation &
assignment" (3fd94c6b1a1158d3e0e505b0a00c3a707b5fcd40) but I don't
think this would be easy to revert.


Comment 5 Chuck Ebbert 2008-04-27 01:03:03 UTC
Still broken?

Comment 6 Adrian Reber 2008-04-27 11:09:20 UTC
Changes in Linux exposed a bug in the firmware. With correct firmware the
installation can detect the network card again. Closing as NOTABUG.
