Hi, I've been trying to get 1.02b baremetal working but without any luck. Through serial the boot process shows this: 

 

:: Loading module tg3[    7.189291] tg3 0000:02:00.0: Problem fetching invariants of chip, aborting
 ... [  OK  ]

 

Any idea?

Thank you!

if the network driver does not work it's only logical that there will be no webinterface over network

 

the tg3.ko is alredy part of the original extra.lzma from jun

if you google your error you will find that this is no synoloy specific error

"inserting the broadcom module before tg3 makes things appear to load"

as there is no broadcom.ko in the extra.lzma from jun and in the kernel source of 6.1_15047 there is nothing to find in the drivers/net/ethernet/broadcom makefile that would create a broadcom.ko so

Can this be fixed? 

It seems a popular issue among the users.

 

 

Thanks for your work!

windows driver are not so useful, if you can provide source that can be compiled with kerne 3.10.102 i will try to compile it, did it already with the realtek r8168, that was easy to get on realteks homepage

 

found this one from 2015, according to the change log the 57788 was added

https://docs.broadcom.com/docs/12358337

 

if i find time i can try to compile it an provide a extra.lzma for testing

I followed your steps in the guide, still no luck. I'm struggling to compile the tg3 drivers from the file you linked. If someone with more compiling skills than me know how to compile them, will be really helpful. 

 

thanks

@IG-88 I've tried with the extra v3 and it doesn't works, now it stops to output through the serial port just after the grub screen. 

 

That's sounds like a kernel crash. No output whatsoever?

Not through the serial port, I'll try again with a fresh 1.02b image with no changes.

as my log for the v3 say's no change to the tg3.ko, its the one jun provides

as i checked the source of the tg3 module of the kernel (as i did before for the bnx2 and found out what firmware files are realy needed) there was i firmware file missing for tg3 so i added it (and docimented it in my changelog)

compiling a new  module for toigon/tg3 from external source is for later (maybe this weekend)
