Default BCM57780 in Dell Precision T1500 ?

Hi !

I have problems configuring network in rescue mode in Fedora 12 on this machine, finds no network interface.
Standard F12 x86_64 DVD does not recognise the chip.

Booting F12 Unity respin x86_64 (kernel 2.6.31.12-174.2.3) lspci detects the chip as BCM57780, but:
dmesg says:
tg3.c:v3.99 (April 20, 2009)
tg3 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
tg3 0000:02:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
tg3 0000:02:00.0: PME# disabled
tg3 mdio bus: probed
eth%d: No PHY devices
tg3: Problem fetching invariants of chip. aborting
tg3 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A disabled

I will need to kickstart this machine in the future, so a solution with a driverdisk
would be fine.

Any suggestions ?

Regards

This is a known issue.

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=BCM57780 (which
includes a workaround that worked for me).
