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).

That makes two of us ;)

My dmesg is very, very similar to yours and hoped that this would work.

ath0: <Atheros 5424/2424> mem 0xf2200000-0xf220ffff irq 19 at device 0.0 on pci5
ath0: Reserved 0x10000 bytes for rid 0x10 type 3 at 0xf2200000
ioapic0: routing intpin 19 (PCI IRQ 19) to vector 64
ath0: [MPSAFE]
ath0: [ITHREAD]
ath0: unable to attach hardware; HAL status 13
device_attach: ath0 attach returned 6

I followed the instructions from the web page, recompiled and it made no difference which really worries me that I must have done something wrong.

cd madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007/hal
cp -R * /usr/src/sys/contrib/dev/ath/

I did not erase it previously but am going to try that. I made no kern configuration changes to find that the hal is from contrib. Is there nothing else I should do?

Thanks,

ed
