Hello:

I have installed FreeBSD-7.0-amd64 stable on my new AMD X2 Turon based
notebook, a MSI-1710A (GX710Ax) which has a generic embedded
controller.  During boot up I notice that ATH complains with:

ath_rate: version 1.2 <SampleRate bit-rate selection algorithm>
ath_hal: 0.9.20.3 (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)
ath0: <Atheros 5424/2424> mem 0xfd7f0000-0xfd7fffff irq 16 at device 0.0
on pci2
ath0: Reserved 0x10000 bytes for rid 0x10 type 3 at 0xfd7f0000
ath0: [MPSAFE]
ath0: [ITHREAD]
ath0: unable to attach hardware; HAL status 13
device_attach: ath0 attach returned 6

HAL status 13 from the header file seems to indicate that the
7.0-STABLE driver doesn't support my hardware revision.  Here is my
pciconf -l output:

Maybe you could try compiling a kernel with a newer hal. This is the kind of
hack we use on the eeepc. Have a look at this:

Thank you SO much for this link.  That's EXACTLY what I want to do
because I realize that this is a HAL problem.  I've been searching
like MAD where I could get an updated binary HAL for this chipset
(PCIe based).

Btw, is there any particular reason you chose the version you linked
against what's the current stable release?  Also is this the only
place to get updated ath HAL's?

Well, the linked page is not mine ;) but I have successfully used newer editions of the madwifi driver on the eeepc, so don't let this stop you!
