You probably need to split it off, and initialize it seperately ysing a SYSINIT in the SI_SUB_DRIVERS, SI_ORDER_ANY. If you have trouble doing this, let me know, and I can take a look at it for you (it's going to be a bit of a pain if it's allowed to be loaded later; if so, the easiest thing to do is to simply load it later, e.g. in /etc/rc.local). > Using $PIR table, 8 entries at 0xc00f7100 > ACPI-0161: *** Error: AcpiLoadTables: Could not get RSDP, AE_NO_ACPI_TABLES > ACPI-0213: *** Error: AcpiLoadTables: Could not load tables: AE_NO_ACPI_TABLES > ACPI: table load failed: AE_NO_ACPI_TABLES > > -- does the above mean ACPI is having problems? -- Probably; if you can break this out as a seperate problem report and Cc: Mike Smith, it's much more likely to be fixed; he owns the ACPI stuff. > rl0: Realtek 8139B detected.

The easiest fix is to ignore it (if you don't have problems) or specify the settings on the ifconfig line (if you do). > And also, what does kernel profiling (profile option) really mean, and > what would be the use of it? If you have to ask, you should probably disable it. 8-). See the handbook for more information on kernel profiling, if you are curious. -- Terry To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
