I've found it best to remove the SUNW packages when replacing them with
more recent versions.
I try to install a driver vor my Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ehternet
but i can't get it run. I'm not a system administrator, just a software
developer who want try to compile on another system, so this might be
a pure newbie question.
I started in 32-Bit mode with "b kernel/unix" and installed the
package. It said okay and that i must restart. After restart the dmesg
But when i use "ifconfig -a" i don't get devices other then "lo0".
I still did what i learned on other systems, and tried
"ifconfig yukonx0 inet 10.0.0.7 netmask 0xFFFFFF00"
but this of course gave me a "SIGCGLIFNETMASK: yukonx0: no such
I also tried the SysKonnect Driver SKGEsolx. If first seems to install
fine, finding the ethernet card and asking me to configure the
but then failing in the postinstall script with a message
"devfsadm: driver failed to attach: skge
Warning: Driver (skge) successfully added to system but failed to
SKGEsolx driver load fialed: IP interfaces wil not be configured!"
On a reboot it was the same, no device, but also no entry in the dmesg.
So i think that the 32-Bit mode is a little bit closer to my solution.
