Solarflare SFN5122F Dual Port 10GbE PCI-E Driver is not loaded by default in 2.4



  • Hello, I bought a very cheap Solarflare SFN5122F on eBay for my home 10GbE solution. I checked that FreeBSD supports it long time ago, and in```
    /boot/kernel/sfxge.ko

    
    However, the driver is not automatically loaded like other ethernet cards, and I have to run```
    kldload sfxge
    ```to load the driver.
    
    Is it possible to recognize it in pfSense, and load it automatically? I believe this 10GbE budget card has been used by many people here, and it will be really useful to have it working by default.
    
    Edited, even having```
    sfxge_load="YES"
    ```in```
    /boot/loader.conf
    ```doesn't automatically load for unknown reason.
    
    Thanks.


  • you have to copy the driver to the /boot/modules directory
