System freezes after cxgb driver is loaded

Post by melloa » Tue Oct 30, 2018 2:30 pm


First of all I'd like to congratulate the project. Clean install, nice desktop. I'm putting it for a spin and migrate for sure.

I did find two issues: mouse (on my KVM) is not working. Will get there later (I know this is the networking support :) )

After my fresh install, I've changed my /boot/loader.conf to load the cxgb driver (if_cxgb_load="YES") and added to /etc/rc.conf an entry for cxgb0 obtain IP from DHCP.

Box boots, loads the driver, finds an old firmware, and hangs.

Any ideas how to go troubleshooting this as I can't get to the box to look logs? ... unless I can get to the disk from the bootloader and remove the change to get the server back running to see if there were any entries in the logs that could point me to the issue.

The card is a Chelsio T320, by the way.
