That's nice, yes.

Maybe the driver is crashing because the device detaches and re-attaches while the driver is stuck somewhere :( If you think you can grab a kernel dump from this, maybe it's going to be useful to debug the problem. > No driver (and of course not working) > > NetXtreme BCM5756ME Gigabit Ethernet PCIe I don't see `BCM5756' or `5756' anywhere in the manpages or the source of the kernel in of 8.0-CURRENT either.

Just ask me. > usable memory = 4278091776 (4079 MB) > avail memory = 4124418048 (3933 MB) Heh, nice. I see you are running an amd64 build of FreeBSD, and there are *lots* of memory on this laptop :) One of the tests you can run, to find out what is broken in wpi(4), is to build a kernel with DDB/KDB support, and grab a kernel dump when the wpi(4) interface stops working. The ``Developer's Handbook'' can help you build a debugging kernel: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/developers-handbook/kerneldebug.html Using DDB to trace through the `live' kernel while it is stuck is a bit tricky, but if you manage to grab some of the DDB output (i.e. with a serial console or even just a photograph with a camera), then we can mail the developers of wpi(4) and ask them for more help :) _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
