O fount of knowledge,
gndv# ifconfig fxp0
fxp0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 172.x.x.188 netmask 0xffff0000 broadcast 18.104.22.168
inet6 fe80::230:64ff:fe01:86ff%fxp0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
media: Ethernet manual
(gndv is a 'generic networking device', a custom built embedded
system based on a pentium III board)
gndv# ifconfig fxp0 media 100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
I'm being told
ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA: Device not configured
while dmesg says
gndv# dmesg | grep fxp0
fxp0: <Intel Pro 10/100B/100+ Ethernet> port 0xd400-0xd43f mem
0xe7200000-0xe72fffff,0xe7302000-0xe7302fff irq 11 at device 8.0 on pci0
fxp0: Ethernet address 00:30:64:01:86:ff, 10Mbps
Any of the media/opt types give the same response. This is identical
for each of the five fxp devices on the board (three on-board, two
additional on a PCI card). Am I misinterpreting the comment
'Device not configured'?
Because the behavior is identical with all five ethernet devices
on the gndv, I'm assuming the problem is my kernel config (4.8R),
with the rc.conf setup, or something equally generic to the entire
system. I have tried, however, running the same kernel on a
straight PC clone (also 4.8R) with three network ports (rl0, fxp0
and fxp1) and was able to ifconfig the media and mediaopts on the
fxp devices without any trouble.
I'd welcome some suggestions about where to look for a solution
to this issue.
