I installed the port and followed the instructions in the README file. I chose the method using rc.conf and ifstart_nv0. The module loads well, but on boot it says: ifconfig: interface nv0 does not exist. When I configure it manually in sysinstall, it is still down, but the interface does exist after boot.
