I wanted a third network card in my BSD machine and since I have a PCI-E
1x port free I thought it could be good to buy a card for that since I
wouldnt plug much anything else in there. The local computer shop had a
Agere card which costed about 25$ so I just bought it. Though when I got
home and started to search for a driver I realized no driver existed for
FreeBSD, atleast what I could find.
There exists one for Linux which I have found some links to:
I have no experience of writing a driver for BSD nor trying to port one
though have extensive programming experience so my question is; Is it
very hard to do a port from Linux? Anyone got any good tips or
references on how to start?
Agere has datasheets for chip which would make it easier as well to
create a driver.
