Re: Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5720 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe

Hi Masanobu,

you possibly replied the the wrong eMail as at the time of my query no BCM5720 support was in the tree. As it was hardware for a client of ours I used FreeBSD for that installation given our timing constraints. Maybe we'll get another client where I can test the -current version on the new hardware
or I manage to get to the co-location to do a quick  -current boot test.
Unfortunately I cannot test right now lacking quick access to the hardware.

Thank you very much for porting the FreeBSD driver to NetBSD. I'll be glad to test it when I
have the opportunity.

Best regards,

on our new Dells I find PCI-ID 14e4:165f (NetXtreme BCM5720 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe) as ethernet interface. Unfortunately the NetBSD bge driver is not up to support this critter yet.

Is there support in the works for it?

The FreeBSD bge driver has some fixes and support for a feature APE which has probably to to with the IPMI support.


1 month ago, I got BCM5179 and BCM5720 cards. The latest bge driver
still has some problems with those cards.

bge0: APE event 0x00010510 send timed out
bge0: block failed to stop: reg 0xc00, bit 0x00000002
bge0: APE event 0x00020510 send timed out

If you got this message, please reboot :-|
The watchdog reset doesn't solve the problem...
After rebooted, it will works... :-|

I suspect some problem exist in bge_attach(), bge_reset()
or bge_init().

 Could you test with the latest -current?
