I would like to determine the unit number of my network cards, e.g.
make the device on pci0:16 be assigned every time with unit number 0
and pci0:19 with unit number 1.
Is it done by /boot/device.hints?
if so, how?
My cards are:
mtnic0 at pci0:19:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x001715b3 chip=0x636815b3
mtnic1 at pci0:16:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x001715b3 chip=0x636815b3
So I've tried:
but it doesn't work. They keep switching arbitrarily.
I'm using FreeBSD 7.0.
