Re: 82599EB 10-Gigabit not detected

Looks like that's a Dell verison of the NIC. My guess is that the device
ID isn't in the driver.

I cannot find any trace of an "ixg" driver in NetBSD. Are you trying
to use the "ixgbe" driver?

It seems that while the source directory is called "ixgbe" the driver
is indeed called "ixg". My fault, sorry.

You could try to get your card to work by changing the array
"ixgbe_vendor_info_array" in "src/sys/dev/pci/ixgbe/ixgbe.c".
You add an entry for your card with the correct PCI device it
it might just work.

The reported device-id is: Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation 82599EB 10-Gigabit SFP+ Network Connection [8086:154d] (rev 01)

I will test to change the array.

Thank you for your efforts
