On recent FreeBSD, the devices should be created automatically if the
hardware they support is present. What device exactly are you trying
Im trying to create carp pseudo device. In rc.conf, I can simply configure it using ifconfig, however only after the device have been created. So manually I would say:
ifconfig carp create
ifconfig carp0 vhid 1 pass mypasswd ipaddress
something like that...
