Hi,

Many laptops have Ethernet Broadcom NetXtreme interface. Unfortunately the driver tg3 is not compiled in elive.
Could you please add it in the next release. (or maybe it could be downloaded from a repository ?)

Thanks

If a user attempted to apply an NVRAM firmware update when running the tg3 module provided with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 kernels, the update could fail. As a consequence, the Network Interface Card (NIC) could stay in an unusable state and this could prevent the entire system from booting. The tg3 module has been updated to correctly apply firmware updates. (BZ#1182903). While updating kernel RPM is recommended solution, some other possible options for doing firmware updates are Boot from an alternate kernel that provides older tg3 driver version. Use hardware manufacture's offline firmware update method. Use hardware manufacture's provided tg3 driver that has already addressed timeout issue.
