    Default RH7.2 Troubles Installing BroadCom BCM5700 NetXtreme on HP D530

    Hello

    I can't install a NIC driver.
    Could somebody help me please ?

    I have completely setup Red Hat 7.2 on a
    "hp compaq business desktop d530 series"
    but the NIC hasn't been detected.

    During the installation process,
    I choosed personnalized and all packages.

    The NIC is a
    "Integrated Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet for HP"

    And when I tried to setup it
    with the driver from broadband.com,
    I got those messages :

    b57um.c:2523: storage size of `eregs' isn't known
    b57um.c:2523: warning: unused variable `eregs'
    make: *** [b57um.o] Erreur 1
    error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.9063 (%build)




    The HP NIC spec URL is :
    http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11692_div/11692_div.HTML

    The driver URL is
    http://www.broadcom.com/drivers/downloaddrivers.php
    (I choosed the 7.1.9 version)

    Here is a excerpt of the doentation I followed :

    1. Install the source RPM package:
    rpm -ivh bcm5700-<version>.src.rpm
    2. CD to the RPM path and build the binary driver for your kernel:
    cd /usr/src/{redhat,OpenLinux,turbo,packages,rpm ..}
    rpm -bb SPECS/bcm5700.spec


    And final full output is :

    Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.9063
    + umask 022
    + cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
    + cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD

    I mostly would like to known
    if it's only a matter of version
    because the error appears in compilation

    Otherwise, the hardware is detected :

    # lspci
    05:02.0 Ethernet controller: BROADCOM Corporation: Unknown device 1696 (rev
    03)

    Sure - the silly driver you downloaded is hugely incompatible with your
    centuries old kernel source. So what?
     

    No it isn't. This is what the pci bus says. Please do not use words
    like "detected" or (worse!) "recognized".
     

    Sure. Get some more recent kernel, one with support for it. I think you
    have a chance. If you really really can't find a driver for it in a
    newer kernel (or even your own kernel! You haven't looked!), then and
    only then use the manufacturers code.

    That's a problem. Tell ya what - find a freind who can.
     

    Sure. A friend.
     

    That's way to old for any modern nic.
     

    Why would it be? Do you need a detective to find out what nic you have?
    tell us what it is that you may be helped.
     

    That's not a very good choice, becuase your personality doesn't seem to
    suit your nic.
     

    No, that's its marketing name, not what it is, no more than "super
    table savoury elixir" is what tomato sauce is.

    Oh - well, get some driver for it then. Go and compile a recent kernel,
    make sure you get drivers for the card, and load them.
     

    Don't. Use the kernels drivers, not something from some ignorant
    manufacturer.
     
     

    There you are!
     

    What's the surprise? Anyway, show us the indicated lines in order that
    you may be helped.
     

    Fooie. Look at lspci to tell us what it is. Use a recent kernel.
     

    Who cares.
     
     

    And which did you choose?

     
     

    What a lot!

    I am happy to tell you that that code has been part of the kernel
    for ages. You don't need any manufacturers drivel. Get a recent
    kernel.

     

    There you are!
     
     

    Quit making life difficult. Get a recent kerenl, compile, install, fin.

    Thank you
    Yes I believe you. I only need to update the kernel
    I appreciated your humour.
    Keep going :-)
