I own a Dell Latitude X1.
I installed FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE on it.
All is well. No problems. Have a nice day.
However, suddenly, when I boot the system, I get a
WARNING: The TPM could not be initialized
I didn't know what TPM was, I didn't care, and I just
booted up. Not my problem.
Except suddenly I have no network card (!) bge0 is
just invisible - it is no longer in my system. As far
as FreeBSD is concerned, it is gone.
So what is going on ? I checked my BIOS and TPM is
disabled - there is no question that it is disabled.
Why do I suddenly get this error at boot time, when I
did not see it for the first few weeks of running
FreeBSD on the system, and _never_ saw this error in a
year of running Windows ? I did not change anything,
or touch the BIOS, or do anything.
I don't care about any of this. I don't have time for
any of this. Fuck broadcom and their "TPM".
So the bottom line is: why did this suddenly show up,
and how do I get rid of it ? I just need my bge0 back...
