according to the rl(4) manpage it is possible to specify the
media options for full and half-duplex modes.
Whenever I try to set my nic to "half-duplex" with the following command:
ifconfig rl0 mediaopt half-duplex
I get an ifconfig error:
SIOCSIFMEDIA: Device not configured
However, if I specify "full-duplex" instead, no problems. This happens
with both media types 100baseTX and 10baseT/UTP.
I tried forcing the media option with the card's configuration utility
under dos. After rebooting OpenBSD I still get same error as before.
Any ideas what could be wrong? This is on a 2.7 CD-install with patches
up to #023 applied manually.
Is it possible to determine which media option is currently set under
Any pointers appreciated.
