still on 5 STABLE.
That machine is -CURRENT, and was at the time of the hardware
change. NB: at the time this happened, the pci scan code did not
automagically connect the card to the re driver; however, forcing
the loading of if_re.ko did the trick.
Just for archival purposes, in case others need this; I solved my
problem by pulling the modifications from RELENG_6 into my local
source, and recompiling my kernel with the drivers included. I don't
seem to require the kernel module like Robert does, as the driver
attaches and initializes when compiled right in. The files to look
at are: if_re.c, if_sk.c, if_skreg,h, and if_rlreg.h.
Thanks for your help Robert.
