Anyone tried Solaris x86 (2.5.1 / 2.6 / 7) on the new Toshiba Tecra 8000?
Any particular experiences? Specifically interested in PCMCIA, X, and
I'm a newbie attempting to install 4.2 on a Toshiba Tecra 8000. I'm
now stuck attempting to get the sound and ethernet configured. The
Tecra has a built in sound card and I attempted to add the pcm line,
but could not find an additional device and certainly not the snd0
device after issuing the MAKEDEV command. Also, my Lucent WaveLAN
card is recognized, but I am not getting an IP number, and can't reach
the internet. I've enable pccard in rc.conf and verified that the
WaveLAN card and wi are in pccard.conf. When I attempt to configure a
network interface through /stand/sysinstall, I start to receive errors
when I confirm dhcp - the errors are xmit failed, tx buffer allocation
failed, and device timeout.
I'm frustrated after two days of working on these two issues and I've
been unable to find detailed instructions on this model with FreeBSD.
Thanks in advance.
