Recently I've installed a test OpenBSD system from an OpenBSD CDROM obtained
from the '99 Monterey USENIX convention on a computer which contains an NE2K
card; unfortunately the card isn't recognized during kernel probing. To resolve
this I installed the entire CVS tree off the CD with srcsys, and then updated
the GENERIC configuration option for the NE2K to tell it the card's IRQ and IO/
BASE address. No problem... configure and away I go.
Unfortunately I'm getting an unterminated comment error during compilation
and now must assume the kernel source has a minor bug. Big problem, I don't
have networking up to CVS or even ftp down a new src tree. Can someone confirm
that this is a known problem with that 2.5 disk set?
So, can I pass a flag to the kernel during boot to tell it where the NE2K
lives? Once I have networking up I can grab new sources and update the
distribution. I suppose I could just fix the unterminated comment, but I
don't I would feel comfortable with that kernel anyway.
Thanks for any help,
