Re: Installation problems.


You can find a build of kernel-nonfree-modules for 2.6.11 here:

The package is not distributable by debian in its current state, until
all firmware license issues are solved.

At least for tg3, broadcom relicensed the firmware in linux-2.6.12. The
debian kernel based on this version will ship with full tg32 support

Best regards
