            Bug ID: 261651
           Summary: System boots only without network with intel e1000
           Product: Base System
           Version: 12.3-STABLE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin

System boots only until network starts to initialize. At the second "ifconfig"
it will hang indefinitely. Booting into single user, or booting without network
makes it boot to login.

You can then configure networking using one "ifconfig em0 netmask".
Calling ifconfig a second time, even without any parameter given, will make it
hang. ctrl-c wont stop this process, same for ctrl-z.

After defining a default route you may use networking as normal.

- Intel e1000, seen as em0

uname -a:

Since virtualization with VMware or KVM-Qemu can emulate an Intel e1000 adapter
you can observe the same with virtual machines running as guest within VMware
Workstation or KVM-Qemu.
