Yes, this works great. I use it on one of my alpha's that doesn't autoneg by default. You don't set ifconfig_xl0 to anything, but instead create a start_if.xl0 file similar to this: > cat /etc/start_if.dc0 /sbin/ifconfig dc0 media auto #/sbin/ifconfig dc0 media 10baseT/UTP /sbin/dhclient dc0 -- John Baldwin <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> -- http://www.FreeBSD.org/~jhb/ PGP Key: http://www.baldwin.cx/~john/pgpkey.asc "Power Users Use the Power to Serve!" - http://www.FreeBSD.org/ To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
