The valid range of values is from 0 to 3 , and the default value is 1 microseconds 1 second. Configure the kernel to include the bcmx driver. Note that if not all the virtual network interfaces are configured with an IP address, there will be an error message in starting the BASP team. This step is optional and should only be done by users familiar with configuring and building the kernel. Further information is available from Red Hat’s website, http: To unload the driver, use ifconfig to bring down all eth interfaces opened by the driver, then do the following:. Three packages are shipped in this release:

When the maximum frame size is less linyx MTU size less thanthis parameter is not used and is always 0. If the driver was installed using rpmdo the following to remove it:.
Setting this property to 1 may resolve such problems. The driver will be installed in the following path:.
The MTU size can also liunx changed using ifconfig after the linhx is loaded. Note that each descriptor will also require a buffer the size of a maximum jumbo frame. Configures the number of transmit descriptors. Create a directory and extract the TAR files to the directory: Build the driver tg3. The valid range is from 1 to The driver is released in two packaging formats: See the ifconfig man page for details.
Optional parameters for the driver can be supplied as command line arguments to the insmod command. BASP for Linux is shipped in mixed forms, where the platform and kernel specific files are in source code, and the core file is in object form.
CONFIG_TIGON3: Broadcom Tigon3 support
Under this directory the following files will be found: Compressed tar bcm version. The Linux driver is released in three packaging formats: Enables or disables receiving flow control pause frames. The MTU size can linuux be changed using ifconfig after the driver is loaded.
Compressed tar tg3- version. Build the driver bcm While tg3 is a fully functioning driver written by Red Hat et al, Broadcom recommends users to use the bcm driver written and tested by Broadcom.
Re: Broadcom BCM5701
Some applications, such as ifupmay not wait long enough for the link before giving up. The driver disk images for the most recent Red Hat versions are included. Note that the driver may not be able to allocate the required amount of memory if this parameter is set too high. When the maximum frame size is less than MTU size less thanthis property bmc5701 not used and always has a value of 0.
The BASP distribution includes a utility program and several scripts for team configuration. If the driver was installed using make install from the tar file, the tg3. Values for optional properties can be set for each installed adapter linus command line arguments in the modprobe command.
Most systems are set to level 6 by default. Note that the driver may not be able to allocate the required amount of memory if the value of this property is set too high.
BCM Linux driver
Source RPM bcm version. Configures the number of received bcm7501 before the vcm5701 generates a receive interrupt. TXT file on the installation CD for a list of the specific Linux distributions on which the adapter driver has been tested. The valid values are:. Setting this parameter higher allows the NIC to buffer larger bursts of network traffic without dropping frames, especially on slower systems. This step is optional and should only be done by users familiar with configuring and building the kernel.
