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://firstname.lastname@example.org/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.
Need libmbpool.ko file. Can you pls help to download it.
