I'm trying to keep very close touch with 6.1_STABLE cvsupping sources
once a week or even more often. I'm thinking of removing as much as
possible devices from the kernel loading them from /boot/loader.conf
instead, so I could rebuild and install them without a whole
kernel/world rebuild and reboot when sources change. I'm not sure this
is a correct way, any piece of advice regarding this would be highly
So, I've successfully done that with sound and network card drivers,
but did not succeed with removing bpf from the kernel. Booting a
kernel with no bpf support, and with
ng_bpf_load="YES" in my loader.conf, the pflogd fails to start with this error:
Nov 11 20:22:33 uxterm pflogd: Failed to initialize: (no
devices found) /dev/bpf0: No such file or directory
Nov 11 20:22:33 uxterm pflogd: Exiting, init failure
And, tcpdump also fails saying that "no suitable device found". Of
course there is no /dev/bpf0.
Is there any way to have the bpf0 device without booting a kernel with
bpf device included?
