Subject:   FreeBSD doesn't like my DC21040 PCI network card
Message-ID:  <"">

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I'm trying to install FreeBSD 2.1.0 on a Dell Optiplex-5100 Pentium 100
with an SMC DC21040 PCI network card.
The boot floppy kernel appears to recognize the card:

	de0 <Digital DC21040 Ethernet> rev 35 int a irq 15 on pci0:13

But the next message is:

	pci_map_port failed: device's iorange 0xff80-0xffff is incompatible
		with its bridge's range 0x0-0xffff

Once I get to the FTP install section, de0 is not listed as an available
network interface. Similarly, if I go into "Fixit" and run "ifconfig -a"
then there is no de0.

I can run NetBSD on this system without such problems.

Can anyone suggest what might be going wrong?
