FreeBSD 7.1-BETA == RELENG_7 in CVS tag terms. FreeBSD 8.0 == CURRENT == HEAD in CVS tag terms. You need to download the data at the below links and save the output in files shown on the left: if_msk.c -- http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sys/dev/msk/if_msk.c?rev=1.34;content-type=text%2Fplain if_mskreg.h -- http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sys/dev/msk/if_mskreg.h?rev=1.13;content-type=text%2Fplain These are the msk(4) Ethernet driver in CURRENT. *DO NOT* visit those web pages in a browser then copy/paste the output into a file. Use a tool like fetch(1) or wget(1) to do the work for you. It's not hard. Once you have those two files, you will need to replace your existing driver code with the new files. First make backups: $ cd /usr/src/sys/dev/msk $ cp -p if_msk.c if_msk.c.orig $ cp -p if_mskreg.h if_mskreg.h.orig Now replace the old code with the new: $ cd /wherever/you/downloaded/the/files $ mv if_msk.c /usr/src/sys/dev/msk $ mv if_mskreg.h /usr/src/sys/dev/msk Now you need to rebuild the kernel and install the kernel. In this scenario, when building the kernel DO NOT use any "-j" flags, as if the driver doesn't build, you'll be scrolling back through pages of data to try and find out why. If the build doesn't occur successfully, paste the errors you get here and one of us can try to figure out why. Otherwise, installkernel and reboot. You should not need to build world for this. -- | Jeremy Chadwick jdc at parodius.com | | Parodius Networking http://www.parodius.com/ | | UNIX Systems Administrator Mountain View, CA, USA | | Making life hard for others since 1977.
