I'm trying to switch to FreeBSD, from years of Linux. I have a 5k with an Adaptec RAID card that has run Linux fine, in the past. I'm still having some trouble getting it to run FreeBSD. After having difficulty with a couple of 5.x kernels, and getting advice here to back off to 4.10, I've got most things working. I'm booting a custom kernel, but the problem is the same with GENERIC.
... ant the problem is that neither of the two E'net interfaces (one on the motherboard, one a separate card) comes up. I can get either, sometimes both, to come up if I fiddle around with ifconfig for a while, but I'm sorry to say that I don't have a reproducable sequence that always works: perhaps something to do with the "media" argument. I've tried fiddling with rc.config, trying to bring up one interface and not the other, include the media argument, and a couple things like that. Basically, I'm floundering.
At some point, looking through the various documentation I noticed that several of my IRQs overlap. Looking at the kernel config file, though, I see that some devices specify an IRQ and some don't. Booting /kernel -c tells me that there are no network devices of any kind, enabled or disabled, so I can't experiment with re-assigning IRQs, to find out if this whole thing is a red herring.
rc.config and dmesg enclosed, fwiw.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Blake Meike
