If anyone can help with this, let me know. I hate dual booting to Winxp just to acess this help site. Wish i could be doing it from linux. I followed the instructions that came with the drivers and get stuck at the Make part. It seems to be looking for a file that is not there and also, says it cannot find the gcc command:
=======================
make: gcc: Command not found
make: *** [b44um.o] Error 127

Below is a copy of my install instructions and the computer complaints:

If you have any advice, also email it to me at: vikings02@charter.net

It sounds like you don't have the compiler packages installed. Go to mandrake's package manager and install all the gcc c packages and compilers and then you should be able to make it properly. If this doesn't work and you want the built file send me an e-mail at matthewstansfield@hotmail.com and i will be happy to send it to you.

Another kind of trouble

Hi, All

I got the following problem with this network driver.

My hardware: Asus a7v8x w onboard Broadcom BCM4400 Network Adapter
OS: Linux RedHat 8.0 (kernel 2.4.18-14)

I got the driver source code (from www.asus.com), compiled it successfully, but when trying to use the module obtained, it fails.

The output is as follows:

Quote:
[user root@src]# insmod bcm4400.o
bcm4400.o: kernel-module version mismatch
bcm4400.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.18-14custom
while this kernel is version 2.4.18-14.
Then i've decided to force module loading
Quote:
[user root@src]# insmod -f bcm4400.o
Warning: kernel-module version mismatch
bcm4400.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.18-14custom
while this kernel is version 2.4.18-14
bcm4400.o: unresolved symbol pci_enable_device_Rsmp_a2411ea7
bcm4400.o: unresolved symbol eth_type_trans_Rsmp_5bfa2c6f
bcm4400.o: unresolved symbol pci_write_config_word_Rsmp_eb06a06f
bcm4400.o: unresolved symbol pci_unregister_driver_Rsmp_513ca96c
......
Help me please, I'm just a newbie in Linux.

Hello all. New here and had to join the fray on this one.

Edit:

Ooops... had a problem where I had to insmod after each reboot. This was due to a typographical error in /etc/modules.conf. Corrected alias command makes it work perfectly.

Question deleted.

Exclamation Compiling

For anyone who is having trouble running the make command on the file hear is what I found was the problem. On some default installations of Mandrake and RedHat some of the GCC Compilers aren't installed. To install them on redhat:
1.Go to your dock and click on the hat that brings up your applications under x

2. Go to system settings

3. Click on packages

4. Scroll down until you see development tools

5. Check developement tools click on details and make sure all the gcc pakages are or will be installed.

It will need some of your installations cd's so make sure you have them handy. I believe the process is similar on mandrake with the mandrake package manager. Any further questions e-mail me at matthewstansfield@hotmail.com

Hey guys, i found a solution to the broadcom 4400 problems. Install a new nic. I did. I had a Belkin laying around, and checked the cd documentation and it used a driver that came WITH the Mandrake 9 install. A nic is about $5 on sale. What is your time worth???? I know, it is the challenge. Good luck all.

Has anyone managed to successfully run make on the ASUS supplied files for the 4401 with SuSE 8.1? I am having the same problem as Samoul (post #47). Make produces screenfulls of errors and does not create the .o file. The instructions with the ASUS driver files must be for an older version of SuSE. They give special instructions to help SuSE users, but the dirs/files they refer to are not there.

Appreciate any help.

I have that mobo too...
you have to compile the drivers von ASUS in your RH8.0
go to www.asus.com download the drivers for Linux,
then extract the .gz, then
cd src
make
and then you go to the RH8.0 network configuration, in RH8.0 its easy, try mandrake 9.0 (i still can configure it!)

good luck

Success!! Driver compiled and installed - once I got ahold of the kernel sources from SuSE. Why, oh why don't they provide the kernel sources on the distro CDs for the Personal version???

Hi i just tried to compile the driver yesturday for my suse 8.1.

Today i got back to work and my mother board was dead.
I wounder if that could be due to the fact that the network card is on the board and that i missed the configuration.

Any idea if that could be the reason or i am just out of luck !
