Greetings, I have a fileserver I installed this nic on but the device
fails to show in ifconfig

The reference to vr0 are for the onboard nic that it is currently
running off of.

ifconfig lists vr0, plip0, lo0

Doing some searching, someone posted this part of dmesg on a 5.4

skc0: <D-Link DGE-530T Gigabit Ethernet> port 0x7400-0x74ff mem
0xfb800000-0xfb803fff irq 18 at device 10.0 on pci2

e1000phy0:  10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, 1000baseTX-FDX,

I did check the hardware notes before buying this nic, and according
to http://www.freebsd.org/releases/5.5R/hardware-i386.html it is
supported.  Have I missed a switch somewhere?

Thanks in advance.


I found this in an archive:


I tried manually editing if_sk.c and if_skreg.h build/install kernel
(patch didn't work, possibly wrong version of file?), and then got
this in dmesg:

skc0: <D-Link DGE-530T Gigabit Ethernet> port 0xec00-0xecff mem 0xdfffc000-0xdff
fffff irq 17 at device 6.0 on pci0
skc0: unknown media type: 0x31
device_attach: skc0 attach returned 6

So then I did some searching for 0x31 and found this:


I added the lines for 0x31 and now the nic shows up in ifconfig.  I am
not home so I can't plug in a patch cord to see if it is fully

If this does work, how would I create a patch file?  I saved the
original files before editing.  I definitely don't want to claim
ownership of the work that went into this, I was just hoping to get it
into the 5.x tree so if I happen to CVSup, I don't need to redo this.
