Hi !

Things seemed to run fine, beside some ports that are
still not supported for amd64, the rest look good.
 But constantly ( as reported also in other mails from
the mailing lists ) when I try a scp of a file > 50MB
it freezes, not only the sk0 but also the system,
which I cannot then reach in any way.
Then I must reboot ( cold boot ) the machine.

To memeber this is an ASUS K8V SE Deluxe, with a:

skc0: <Marvell Gigabit Ethernet> port 0xb000-0xb0ff 
mem 0xfde00000-0xfde03fff irq 17 at device 10.0 
on pci0
skc0: Yukon Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Adapter
sk0: <Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. Yukon> on skc0

I hope this can be of any help, not only for me.

Thanks! everyone
