To chime in and add my 2 ¢ . . .
I knew that Fedora 11 Live works fine with the Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet card used in our university computers -
so this didn't seem much of a bug in F11 or F12 strictly speaking.
I was aware that when running a FreeBSD live version, the unix world looks at drivers of the interface NIC, where I get:
" and "B
thernet BCM5750 A1, ASIC rev. 0x4001"
With the newest
hardware tried on the newest
operating system releases - it may usually
be just a driver / configuration problem -
and not really any implied Broadcom or Fedora "compatability" issue.
It's good to see again it's a simple fix for those that need it,
and glad that most of those that want to be on the cutting edge shouldn't resort to what seems imho a bit more drastic -
buying a different piece of hardware so that the driver / configuration is already there.
It's more like just a matter of turning the device "on".
