Contributed by sean on from the test until your eyes bleed dept.
Lots of new drivers have recently become functional in the lead up to the next release. So we really need people to run with the snapshots and try them out.Some of the drivers we are in particular interested in feedback on are:
rum(4) 2nd Generation Ralink Technology USB 802.11 wireless. This is basically Ralink's replacement for ural(4) there is both a MIMO version (RT2601USB) and a non MIMO version (RT2501USB). So far we have only tested with a small number of non MIMO devices we have. Many thanks to Ralink for providing documentation and allowing us to distribute firmware to their devices once again. Contact niallo@, damien@, jsg@.
acx(4) Texas Instruments ACX100/ACX111 PCI/CardBus 802.11 wireless. This a port of DragonFly BSD's acx(4) driver which uses our firmware loading framework instead of a seperate userland program among other changes. TI won't even respond to requests for allowing their firmware to distributed, so we can't include it. The man page details a package that can be installed with pkg_add(1) in a similiar manner to the Intel wireless drivers. Contact jsg@, mglocker@.
