I've installed the debian package bcm5700-source.deb and it has created

when I follow Broadcom readme file and make the driver it creates a
faulty one with lots of undefined symbols.
Should I make use of the debian dir.?
I'm running Woody 2.4.18-1-686-smp
Note: couldn't locate tg3 source and couldn't install kernel 2.4.27
I used these bcm5700 drivers for quite a long time on two proliant ml
350 servers, but recently I switched to a newer kernel than the 2.4.18,
which supports the broadcom chips natively. It's a 2.4.27 from
www.backports.org. Use the trigon "tg3" module which runs flawlessly
with most broadcom gigabit chips.
All you need to do is adding the following line to your
deb http://www.backports.org/debian stable kernel-image-2.4.27-i386
Unless you prefer compiling you're own kernel, of course.
