    Exclamation Not able to locate source code for tg3 driver on 2.6.18-8.el5


    Hi All,

    I have installed Linux OS which is RHEL5(2.6.18-8.el5). I want to do some experiment on network device driver in the system. It hat as broadcomm card which is supported by tg3 driver.
    [root@lan-dev /]# ethtool -i eth0
    driver: tg3
    version: 3.65-rh
    firmware-version: 5751-v3.29a
    bus-info: 0000:40:00.0

    As I need source code for my experiments, I have downloaded source code rpm which is kernel-2.6.18-8.el5.src.rpm. I have used below commands to update to the current OS.

    rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.18-8.el5.src.rpm
    rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.18-8.el5.src.rpm

    After installation i didn't source code in /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-8.el5-i686/.

    Could you please let me know where can i see tg3 source code and how can i compile tg3 driver ?

    Thanks.
