Description Rusmir Dusko freebsd_committer 2014-02-18 15:30:01 UTC
I have a clean install of PC-BSD 9.2 with ZFS.

I understand that 9.2 is supported til June 2014, and upgraded
to PC-BSD 10.0-RELEASE-p4.

FreeBSD and PC-BSD were working on this PC from 9.0 to 9.2.

Hardware details

Asus Crosshair IV Formula, AMD 890FX, AM3, CrossFireX


Marvell Yukon 88E8059 Gigabit Ethernet

I bought this for ZFS performance enhancement.

Corsair Vengeance (2x, 8GB, DDR3-2000, DIMM)

I have seen that VirtualBox and nVidia drivers (.ko)
built in FreeBSD 9.2 are not compatible with FreeBSD 10,
but can't have a new build because of not having a working Internet connection.

Later checked messages with

pkg update -f
Updating repository catalogue
msk0: watchdog timeout
pkg: Unable to find catalogs

When i try to enable LAN ROM in BIOS, then PC freezes at times.

I have searched Internet and looked at 


This was before too problem with msk0, em0, re0 and soo on







Not helps

service netif restart && service routing restart

ifconfig msk0 polling

ifconfig msk0 -tso

sysctl -a | grep tcp.tso
net.inet.tcp.tso: 1

sysctl net.inet.tcp.tso=0

watchdog -t 0

I use FreeBSD/PC-BSD and no other Operational Systems, but tried coldboot for several hours.


Please fix this mistake

How-To-Repeat: Driver for ethernet msk0 not works more.

batch change:

For bugs that match the following
-  Status Is In progress 
- Untouched since 2018-01-01.

Reset to open status.

I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.

Feedback timeout (4 years). Should be fixed since then.
