No such device as well as a permision denied error to create socket for “eth0” and ultimately failed to raise network interfaces. Byte swap is incorrect! A workaround is to download the upstream git and take firmware form there. The ifconfig 8 mediaopt option can also be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes.
