Description

In 2.5.0 if_qlnxe is missing as a module (or compiled in). In 2.4.5 this was also the case but there I was able to copy over the relevant module from a stock freebsd release and use that. However trying to use if_qlnxe.ko from freebsd 12.2 fails in pfsense 2.5.0 (it seems the kernel and module don't match). So I was wondering:
- can this module be provided as a ko-file so we can proceed our upgrade to 2.5.0 ?
- can this module be compiled-in for future releases?

Regards,
Franky

That GitLab link seems broken.

I'd like to second this request. I just tried adding:

if_qlnxe_load="YES" 

to loader.conf, and was dismayed to find that qlnxe seems to be removed from pfSense even though it's available in FreeBSD 12.2. This is a 100% blocking issue for us using pfSense going forward.
