Subject:   Enet driver for Marvell
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
A while ago, a matter of a few months I inquired of this list regarding
installation of FreeBSD v6.0 on ASUS M2N32 WS Pro motherboard.
I was not able to set up dual ethenet inter faces as the only option
presented by sysinstall when configuring enet interface was
fw30 as firewire ethernet emulation. I was advise to upgrade to v6.2
which I have just done. I still do not have more than the fwe interface
The response to the original message, I can not find, but I was told
that the motherboard was probably one with new Marvell interfaces.
Now, I have looked at the features listed on the motherboard package
and there it is;
2x Marvell 88E1116 PHY
Is there a driver that has to be activated by kernel config setting or
what is the status of support for this hardware in FreeBSD?
I just looked through the supported hardware/ethernet devices for
the i386 architecture and did not find any reference to Marvell.
I purchase a cd set of v6.2 cds from FreeBSD Mall (not inplying
any criticism, just that it represents a method of contribution to
this project).
This is frustrating because this machine is supposed to be a production
web server. Hardware including dual 15K SCSI drives and adapter  has run
in the neighborhood of $1000 and it still is not useful for it' 
intended purpose
Any info or advice appreciated
Thanks in advance;
Jeff K
