For anyone who doesn't have the drivers on cd:

As I posted elsewhere on this forum you can download the linux driver files for the broadcom 4400/4401 from my site.

Well I got as far as the chap above (I'm new to RH btw, and this is my 1st post here on this board. However, I got little further. After running the 1st make commands (which seem to work the way they're supposed to, as files seem to be created), when I try to verify which insmod, I get bash: insmod: command not found (huh?), when I first ran this, it knew the command, but said no file or directory...I'm really confused.

. Do I need to use a different kernel? (If so please explain what I need to do to use a different kernal).

Also, forgive my ignorance, but how do I use the./configure command? I tried doing it with the path to the src directory, but it comes back with no file or directory

Please bear with me, I'm (obviously a )

In RH, the /sbin directory isn't listed in the default path. So to run insmod or lsmod or rmmod or anything like that you have to tell it the full path to the app. Type:

/sbin/insmod [modulename]

As for ./configure, I take it to mean that you want to install the files in the src directory. This can vary from one program to another, but its usually

./configure --prefix=[directory]

Hope this helps.

It's working fine on my SuSE 8.1 and A7V8X.

I followed the install. ONLY ONE PROBLEM!!!

You have to edit /etc/modules.conf:
Change:
alias eth0 bcm4400.o

To:
alias eth0 bcm4400

integrated BroadCom 440X with kernel 2.4.21-pre5

BroadCom 440X support might be easily included into the kernel. It is not for newbies' but If someone is intrusted I could describe.

At least I got it working with 2.4.21-pre5 and driver 1.0.1 for broadcom.

Unhappy Red Hat 9 does not support

I installed Red Hat 9 and it does not support the driver that I downloaded for Red Hat 8.0 because 9 is kernel 2.4.20-8. I am a newbie and do not know how to make the old one work. Could someone help me by posting a URL for the kernel 2.4.20-8 as used in Red Hat 9.

Thanking you in advance.

RH9 Shouldn't be a problem

RH9 shouldn't be a problem with the same driver. All you have to do is re-make and re-install for the new kernel. When I upgraded to RH9, I used the original tar file containing the driver that I used in RH8 and 7.3 and simply re-made it, then /sbin/insmod bcm4400.o and make install. The one thing to make sure is that the kernel sources are installed for the new kernel. Without those, you won't get far. Hope this helps.

Hi SenorPedo

I´m glad to know that there´s a driver for Broadcom 440.

I´ve been searching for hours but there seems to be no driver for Linux at all.

have you got an URL for the driver download or can you send it to me at roland_tomuschat@yahoo.de

still in hope

roland
