Hi community,

Could you help a newbie, please? I've recently download and install SLES10.4 for tests. My company is looking for an OS for production system and SLES10.4 is one from the list. So, I have a physical server DELL PowerEdge R720xd. It has integrated NICs Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet BCM5720. The funny thing is the installed SLES10.4 doesn't see NICs. When I try to install a network card via YAST I just can't find driver I need from the yast list. There is even more strange that YAST can detect cards when I choose "Hardware Information" section. I've been fighting with the OS for nearly a day and I'm exhausted. I've already googled what driver I need for this type of card and manually loaded it on kernel. Now, when I do lsmod command I see the module I need (tg3) is in a memory. But the system doesn't see the driver. Even after reboot (the module is in the memory) yast doesn't provide me a proper driver from its list for final installation of network cards. Could you help me, please? What am I doing wrong?

Thank you in advice,
Ivan

Hi
What is the output from;


lspci -nnk
hwinfo --netcard

Really need to confirm the PCI ID's of the card....

I've reinstall the system just in case and noted that even during installation SLES10.4 doesn't see network cards and if I try to install them manually I don't have Broadcom drivers into the driver installation list. Any ideas?

Hi
You should be seeing something like from the hardware output;


Driver Modules: "tg3"
Device File: eth0


The release notes indicate it's there
https://www.suse.com/releasenotes/x86_64/SUSE-SLED/10-SP4/

Now how did you install the drivers?

Can you provide the output from


modinfo tg3

Just to see it's using the ones you installed, not the in kernel one.

Hi Ivan,

> I've recently download and install SLES10.4 for tests. My company is looking for an OS for production system and SLES10.4 is one from the list.

I'm not sure how to read that, so: If you don't have some dependencies on that specific level... SLES10SP4 is rather old, SLES11SP2 is the current version.

Nevertheless, since Malcolm said it ought to be supported even in SLES10SP4, I hope you two will find a way to get it running with that release, too.

Regards,
Jens

Hi
The only thing I can think of the SLES 10SP4 kernel version of the tg3
doesn't support the particular model (PCI ID). However even DELL
hardware documentation says SLES10SP4 is supported....

By the way send you output from modinfo command as you asked:

Do you have ideas?

Hi
OK, that kernel and module doesn't support the device 14E4:165F hence
the issue. Did DELL provide a driver download (at least ver 3.119, see
below)? If so do you have the link to the download?

What needs to be build is an out of tree module the later kernels
support the device (SLES 11 SP2) eg;


/sbin/modinfo tg3

filename: /lib/modules/3.0.42-0.7-pae/kernel/drivers/net/tg3.ko
firmware: tigon/tg3_tso5.bin
firmware: tigon/tg3_tso.bin
firmware: tigon/tg3.bin
version: 3.119
license: GPL
description: Broadcom Tigon3 ethernet driver
author: David S. Miller (davem@redhat.com) and Jeff Garzik

Up.
Thank you very much, guys for you help and support. DELL didn't provide the driver but I've found the latest version on the vendor's site. The latest version has finally worked up.

Thank you very much indeed all of you.
Ivan.

Hi
No problem :) Just be aware if there is a kernel update you will need
to rebuild/re-install the driver as per the method you used so it
matches the running kernel.
