There is a 64-bit HAL for the Atheros chipset in the CVS version of
madwiki.. Any chance that will be included in the ath_hal device for
AMD64 FreeBSD? I made an attempt at getting this to work myself by
dropping in the 64-bit, but received a missing symbol of
"ath_hal_memcpy" when loading the driver.
I then defined "ath_hal_memcpy" as "bcopy((_src), (_dst), (_size))" as
required in ah_osdep.h, and with a version change, the module loded
successfully with the device found. Unfortunately, when I try to
manipulate it after an "ifconfig ath0 up" I get a kernel panic.
Honestly didn't think it would be that easy, but I thought I'd try.
I have a copy of the 64-bit HAL if anyone needs it.. Something
changed somewhere but I'm not all that experienced in this sort of
thing. Until then I'm running i386/FreeBSD 5.3BETA3 on my dual
Opteron. Tried Fedora but it gave me fits. I'm probably in the
minority, but wireless is the only method I have for connecting to the
