A while ago I posted with some issues with ath on 9.0-CURRENT, which were
fixed by a patch someone posted to the list.
A few weeks later, ath broke again and neither a vanilla kernel nor one with
the patch worked, complaining of errors attaching HAL. Googling the terms
turned up only results from 2008.
I didn't have time to look into it so I ignored it, figuring that it would be
fixed in due course and that I'd pull when I had time.
Over the weekend I spent some time on the problem, and it appeared that
building ath support into the kernel was the issue, my config with
> device ath
> device ath_pci
> device ath_hal
(Apologies if that's not spelled correctly, I'm not actually in front of the
Doesn't load, however if I removed MODULES_OVERRIDE from make.conf and try to
load those modules, I'm told that it's already in the kernel.
I also built GENERIC from the config in SVN and no luck.
Finally, I removed those device lines from my config, built with all modules
and enabled load_ath and load_ath_pci in loader.conf and wireless now works
I'm now curious about why- and what I can do to know how to chase this up
myself next time.
