In that case you may need to communicate with a developer about it. Someone probably has more information about this chipset than I do. > Reading more about it, now i know this Attansic adapter is a PCI-E device, > let me question you. What is a PCI-E device?, what are the differences with > a common PCI device?. PCI Express is quite an evolution from original PCI. It isn't really a bus; it provides a full mesh of signal paths. Several FreeBSD drivers support PCI Express devices today, but apparently not the one you have. I would have wondered if lge(4) supported it, but that is in the default kernel already. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
