... anyone has find a workaround for this type of nic?
Here is the Solars Hardware Compaztibility List (HCL):
If you are experimenting with an OS that is new-to-you, it is usually so much easier to use a desktop instead of a laptop.
Hardware components can be swapped in and out if frustrations show up.
Once you are comfortable with whatever that new OS might be, you can then decide where you will permanently install it.
you can always go to marvell and download the correct driver.
let us know how it goes as i am having trouble attaching nic, whiclt it was fine inder openindiana
I tried the Yukon driver from the Marvell driver page, but had also that error when attaching the driver. I also wrote a request to Marvell to fix that problem on Solaris 11. Hope they will fix it soon. Any workaround that works?
Today I received the answer of my support request. Marvell send me a link to a developer homepage with NIC drivers that are supported by Solaris 11:
But on this page I can only find a driver for the...
..chips. Perhaps this one will work in your laptop as well. I will need to test it soon.
Link to the download of myk driver:
btw.. you could also try this:
pkg install pkg:/driver/network/ethernet/yge
This is the original Yukon 2 driver. I'm not sure if your chip is a Yukon or Yukon 2 model. Feedback would be great!

I just tested the myk driver and it works perfectly smooth with my 88E8039 and also posted a HowTo on my blog:
