Hi,=20
=20
I would like to determine the unit number of my network cards, make the
device on pci0:16 appear always as mtnic0 and pci0:9 appear always as
mtnic1.
=20
# pciconf -l | grep mtnic
mtnic0@pci0:19:0:0:     class=3D0x020000 card=3D0x001715b3 =
chip=3D0x636815b3
rev=3D0xa0 hdr=3D0x00
mtnic1@pci0:16:0:0:     class=3D0x020000 card=3D0x001715b3 =
chip=3D0x636815b3
rev=3D0xa0 hdr=3D0x00
=20
Is it done by /boot/device.hints?
if so, how? I've tried:
=20
hint.mtnic.0.at=3D"pci0:16"
hint.mtnic.1.at=3D"pci0:19"
=20
but it doesn't work. They keep switching upon reboot.
I'm using FreeBSD 7.0.

Thanks
