Hi guys!



I am testing with a Marvell Yukon Gigabit NIC here.



I started by cleaning "/etc/rc.conf" as requested and installed the beta
network manager PBI.


After rebooting, I went on to install the nic driver.

I had to manually install the driver as it's not available in the default


I got the FreeBSD driver from Marvell's site here:





To install the driver I do the following:




su - ENTER

Password: - ENTER

pkg_add /home/pcbsdusr/Desktop/mykbsd60x86- - ENTER





Edit /etc/rc.conf adding "myk" to the list NIC list as the network manager
doesn't see the Marvell NIC.





To load the the module on boot I add to /boot/loader.conf:





Final step:


To load the kernel module by hand, type:


 kldload if_myk.ko




At this time, I tried to connect to the internet without success so I opened
the network manager.


It seems my NIC was not configured to go DHCP by default in the network


Shouldn't the default option be DHCP? Is this a problem with my setup only?


I solve this issue by selecting the DHCP option in the network manager and
restarting the network from the tray icon. (how can I reset the network from
within the manager?)




Keep up the excellent work!
