Hi, all. Still trying to make bridging work. After a little comparison
with another OBSD machine, I now realize that this unit doesn't appear
to have bridging configured at all; ifconfig -a does not return any
I didn't build this box's OS image. It was pre-installed by the fine
folks at SeraSystems, and I'm wondering if maybe their kernel config (or
something? what else could it be?) left out bridging, but I don't know
how to verify that.
I regret my newbieism in this regard. Have sent mail to SeraSystems,
I'm sure they'll get back to me, but in the meantime I'd like to know
how to look for myself.
/usr/src/sys/conf/GENERIC has bridging switched on, but I doubt that the
standing kernel was actually compiled on this unit so that's probably
/kern doesn't show anything that's obvious (to me), but I don't know
where to look.

My /etc/bridgename.bridge0 file looks like this:
add fxp0 add fxp1 up
The hostname.[if] files for fxp0 and fxp1 both look like this:
inet media 100BaseT up
I don't think there's anything else I need to do, but when I try to
do anything with brconfig I get the error "bridge0 is not a bridge".
brconfig -a returns no output.
So, uh, which doc did I fail to read?
