Ubuntu – No network interfaces detected when installing Ubuntu Server on Mac Mini


I have a new Mac Mini (MacMini6,1 late 2012) that I would like to install Ubuntu Server 13.04 (ubuntu-13.04-server-amd64+mac.iso) on. But it seems like Ubuntu Server isn't able to detect my network interface, because I get the message:

No network interfaces detected

How can I fix this issue? Is there any module or driver that I can add for this?

I have now tried to install Ubuntu Server with the build-essentials package and downloaded source to the tg3-driver as suggested in the answers. But when compiling (with the make command) I get errors:

cc1: some warnings being treated as errors
make[2]: *** [/home/jonas/tg3-3.129d/tg3.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [_module_/home/jonas/tg3-3.129d] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.8.0-19-generic`
make: *** [default] Error 2

Any suggestions?

Go into bios; check to see if Virtualization (VT-d) is enabled. Try again. If that doesnt work...

Get driver here: http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/netxtreme_desktop.php Copy to USB disk and configure.
