I am planning for replacing one of my servers. I want to upgrade to
at least a dual-core machine. I found the Abit IP 35 Pro motherboard
at Frys which looks like it has most everything I need. However, I
don't find any discussions about that particular board in the
archives or Google. Has anyone used that board and does it work well
with FreeBSD 6? Thanks.
P35 in general has caused problems
That board should work perfectly fine on FreeBSD 7-CURRENT (or 7-RELEASE
when that becomes available), and for all intensive purposes should work
with 6-RELEASE; you'll want to update to the latest version of 6 though
because there were some driver releases that came out which allow you to
use Marvell NICs (msk driver), for instance.
I have a comparable board from ASUS (P5K-E) and it worked fine with 6.x
(6.1-rc1, 6.2 latest), and works nicely with 7-CURRENT (sources sup'ed
from Sept 27th). So unless Abit does something funky with the devices
onboard, things should work perfectly fine (not sure about onboard
graphics though since I have an nvidia card :)...).
