I'm having trouble setting up networking on the ABIT AV8 motherboard using
the onboard NIC. From:
"On-board ethernet controller (vge(4)) does not work unless statically
compiled into kernel."
I do know how to compile a kernel (from the Handbook) but I do not know how
to compile a module statically. Could anyone please point me to the right
documentation on doing that?
I swear I looked almost everywhere (that is, everywhere but the right
Also, I found on google that an alternative is to stop the module from being
loaded at boot, and loading it only after the system boots. I tried to
disable the module (disable-module if_vge on the console prompt) but I still
get a kernel panic related to vge when booting. Is there a correct way to
stop the module from being loaded? And how would I go about loading it
In case you're wondering, I had to disable the onboard NIC to install
FreeBSD, or I get a kernel panic.
Thanks in advance. :)
