Marvell FreeBSD Driver Integration 1.2-RC3



  • I have a D-Link DGE-560T NIC that I'm trying to get working on a new pfsense box running 1.2-RC3 .

    As per this post: http://www.mail-archive.com/support@pfsense.com/msg10873.html
    I have downloaded the Marvell drivers for the DLink.
    (note the user comments on New Egg for why Marvell drivers are better than DLinks : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127163&Tpk=dlink%2bDGE560T)

    First problem I had was that libmbpool.ko was missing and required by the driver.
    A kind soul on the pfsense forums gave me a copy for 1.2-RC3 which I put in /boot/kernel/

    next, executing the command kldload if_myk.ko (the driver) completes successfully but the NIC does not come up.

    Since I am new to FreeBSD (but not to *nix) can somebody please give me advice how to troubleshoot this?

    I checked dmsg and saw a Network Controller without a driver assigned to it on PCI7. I can assume this is my DLink since all the other NIC's are loaded fine.

    Any help greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
