I recently bought a Dell XPS M1530 and I decided to put PC-BSD/FreeBSD on it. FreeBSD didn't detect the Marvell 88E80XX driver. I downloaded the FreeBSD 6 driver from Marvell's site
. However, it still doesn't work. I do a kldload, but I don't get myk0 displayed. I tried rebooting (with the necessary entries in /boot/loader.conf and /etc/rc.conf) without any success. I also tried the FreeBSD driver (if_msk.ko) and that didn't work either. I'm not sure what to do now. I would really like to get PC-BSD running on this machine. I don't want to use Vista!
Here is the output from pciconf:
