Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

Realtek PCIe FE / GBE / 2.5G / Gaming Ethernet Family Controller kernel driver. This is the official driver from Realtek with a few patches to improve stability and performance. It can be loaded instead of the FreeBSD driver built into the GENERIC kernel if you experience issues with it (eg. watchdog timeouts), or your card is not supported. Supported devices: * 2.5G Gigabit Ethernet - RTL8125 / RTL8125B(S)(G) * 10/100/1000M Gigabit Ethernet - RTL8111B / RTL8111C / RTL8111D / RTL8111E / RTL8111F / RTL8111G(S) RTL8111H(S) / RTL8118(A)(S) / RTL8119i / RTL8111L / RTL8111K - RTL8168B / RTL8168E / RTL8168H - RTL8111DP / RTL8111EP / RTL8111FP - RTL8411 / RTL8411B * 10/100M Fast Ethernet - RTL8101E / RTL8102E / RTL8103E / RTL8105E / RTL8106E / RTL8107E - RTL8401 / RTL8402 See also:

For install:
Add the following lines to your /boot/loader.conf to override the built-in FreeBSD re(4) driver. if_re_load="YES" if_re_name="/boot/modules/if_re.ko" By default, the size of allocated mbufs is enough to receive the largest Ethernet frame supported by the card. If your memory is highly fragmented, trying to allocate contiguous pages (more than 4096 bytes) may result in driver hangs. For this reason the value is tunable at boot time, e.g. if you don't need Jumbo frames you can lower the memory requirements and avoid this issue with:"2048"

net/realrek-re-kmod198: add port for 198 version

as a workaround for bug 275882. This port can be retired when the bug is
resolved completely.

Many people need the 198 version because of the hang-up issue. Another
set of people need 199 because of another issue. This port is needed to
satisfy both sets of people until complete until a complete solution for
275882 is found.
