Installation Impass perhaps IXGBE driver

  • service provider:  Softlayer
    our hardware: SuperMicro X8DTN+_R2 Intel Xeon HexCore DualProc [2Proc], Intel Xeon-Westmere 5620-Quadcore [2.4GHz]x2, SuperMicro SuperMicro 10 Gigabit Port AOC-STGN-i2S
    OS:  freebsd 8.1p2

    trying to install:  pfSense-2.0-RC1-amd64-20110226-1807.iso

    but, the installation freezes….and our host softlayer thinks that the version of FreeBSD (8.0) currently being distributed in Pfsense 2.0 RC1 may not have recent fixes for the ixgbe driver.....any idea if that is the case and if there is a fix for the ixbe driver???

  • think we may have found more specifically that pfsense does not have a driver to support our Softlayer 10G nic card:  Network Card SuperMicro SuperMicro 10 Gigabit Port AOC-STGN-i2S

    can anyone please confirm this conclusion or are we misunderstanding something?

  • Please provide the output of the pfSense shell command:```

    dmesg ; pciconf -l -v
