- My machine has an i219 phy which the developer can't complete I don't know how close this is phy is tied to skylake in generall. For now, I reuse an old NE2000 10Mb/s card from the attic.

- I'm not sure about the best cpu flags for pkgsrc. The pkgsrc guide suggests to consult devel/cpuflags. This program suggests -march=native which is only supported by gcc on linux.

- the intel xorg driver does not detect my cpu's HD510 chipset

I tried netbsd 8's snapshot with its xserver as well as the modular x server from pkgsrc-2017Q3.

Perhaps I need some intel binary blobs

Anyone had more luck?
