It might just be using a PCI ID that the rl driver doesn't know about. Run "pciconf -lv", find your card, and note the chip= value. The first 4 digits are the device ID, and the last 4 are the vendor ID. Add them to /sys/pci/if_rlreg.h (search for VENDORID) and to /sys/pci/if_rl.c (search for rl_devs), rebuild your kernel, and reboot. If it works, submit a pr with the info so it can be added to the next release. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
