18 Woo hoo! I did as someone suggested and build all broadcom and tg3
19 drivers into the kernel. I had previously build tg3 into the kernel,
20 but that didn't work. However, when I was configuring the kernel this
21 time, I noticed some entries about Broadcom PHY. On my laptop, when it
22 boots and gets the the tg3 load, it says something about tg3 and has
23 libphy in brackets. The stuff about Broadcom PHY was never built into
24 the kernel and it wasn't something that I deselected. I'm not sure
25 exactly what portion of this fixed the problem, but at least my ethernet
26 is active when I boot! :-)
28 Thanks to everyone who helped on this!
30 Now, I'm on to working on an audio problem - Can't get audio CD's to
31 play in either kscd or kaffeine. Haven't installed amarok yet.
33 Regards,
