Thanks - I tried but did not help. The mobo is AN35N Ultra.
The exact error is:
ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0xe7000000-0xe700ffff irq 7 at device 8.0 on pci1
ath0: could not map interrupt
device_attach: ath0 attach returned 6
I upgraded to something called RELENG_5 but it did not help (but now the
onboard NVIDIA ether driver does not build ;-)
I am running no GUI but command line only (yes I go back that long
