Intel x520 doesnt work, probably ixgbe driver for amd64
I've been looking for ixgbe.ko module for amd64.
I cant get it, everytime I plug my intel x520 network card , I get fatal trap.
The X520-series is based on the 82599 chip which I don't believe is supported under FreeBSD 8.1. You can try compiling a driver from Intel if one is available. You'd want to install FreeBSD on a separate box, compile the driver, then move it over.
