Less useless

For a while I've been trying to get FreeBSD to boot on my TS-7800.
It's getting close, but it's not quite there yet. I'm currently struggling with the network driver (mge(4)) and the Marvell 88EE1118 PHY. There seems to be a problem with the auto negotiation.

It still doesn't work, but I did find a bug in the PHY driver which got patched yesterday. I was slightly useful!

You can be even more useful by organizing a small beer event in Antwerp, to celebrate the patch ;-)

Agreed! But no Thursdays please, Japanese lessons take priority for now, I'm afraid! Though I am mighty thirsty...





Just type 'no', without quotes. First an 'n', then an 'o'. You can do it.
