           Summary: Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5755 not supported in Xen-3.0.4
           Product: Xen
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P4
         Component: Hardware Support
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: vladimir.mencl@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


I have tried to install Xen-3.0.4 on a HP workstation xw4400, but the network
adapter is not recognized.  Without networking, Xen is not really useful to me.

Note that the card is recognized by Centos-4.4 (kernel 2.6.9-42.0.8.ELsmp) and
Fedora Core 6 (kernel-xen-2.6.18-1.2849.fc6.i686.rpm).

It would really help if this card was supported by the Dom0 kernel packaged
with Xen.

Please find the lspci details for the card below.
