Red Hat 8.0 driver


I have updated my post above and included a copy of the Red Hat 8.0 driver on my website. Use at your own risk but this is what I built and is currently working on my Dimension 2350

http://www.racores.com/temp/bcm4400.o

Use "save link to disk" to get the file

No, I can't help you with SuSe. I don't have access to it and I don't have the time to walk you through it. I followed the instructions in the .txt file I posted with the tarball. They generated a tremendous number of warnings. other email has stated to ignore them so I did. i then did a "make install" and when I rebooted, it recognized the hardware and configured it for me. That is the sum total of my experience with it. Sorry.

Then you probably don't have the development tools and libraries needed loaded onto your system, or at least not properly.

broadcom bcm 4401 lan

hi all

the AsusTek/Broadcom bcm 4401 lan is really troublesome. i havent yet got it working, but i am trying...

the drivers, no rpm found yet. the .tar.gz is available on the cd or from asus. it is a zip file of about 10 meg with all drivers included.
4401.zip or similar.

the microstar site www.msi.com.tw has similar files for a bcm 4401 at a coupla hundred kb download. i tried these and they were no better/different to the asus files

with mandrake 9.0 i needed to load all the source code/libraries/development files to get a 'make' to produce a bcm4401.o and that is my progress to date.

this is writ in w98se using the bcm4401 and i a going to switch to mandy9 and try some of the suggestiond found here.

Question ASUS A7V8X LAN driver

Hi There

I also have an ASUS A7V8X where RH8.0 does not detect the onboard LAN interface.
I've read the previous articles with interest, but one thing i don't know what is "./configure".

Could someone please give a newbie some instructions!

ikaros, for these drivers you don't need a ./configure step, so don't worry about that, for now.

SenorPedo, I have essentially the same system as you, but I am not getting this to work. Maybe I am looking at the wrong instructions on motherboard CD because what I am looking at says nothing about /configure or make, etc.

I found the reference to "make" in the section titled "Building the driver from tar file." I get errors. Can't help wondering if I need the development packages installed. When I try to update it says I need krb5-libs-1.2.5-6. I just downloaded and went to install and I am told that I already have a newer version. Yikes! I am getting frazzled.

I'd like to simply put the RH8 install CD into the drive and reboot to reinstall RH*, but that ain't happening either.

Yes, you need to have the development packages installed and also the kernelsources, otherwise you cannot make these drivers. Some good news: the drivers are included in the development kernel (I think from 2.5.47 on), so when 2.6 is out we won't have these problems anymore (as soon as the major distros will include that kernel).

So if I understand correctly, I should probably just go buy a card for now. Any suggestions?
