A new driver is released:
To install it requires kernel source, anybody can show me how to install it step by step?

Connect to the internet (I know you are ...but....)
Remember to use the TAB key to select OK on the following screens.
Open Konsole (Terminal Program) and type
su (then enter root password)
Arrow DOWN till you get to "Configure" and select it (enter)
The select "Distributions"
Arrow key down to "src" and select it
Arrow ket down to "sys" and select it
You should end up at a screen called "Choose Installation Media"
Select the FTP or HTTP option that seems to suit. I choose "2. FTP" as I am not behind a filewall a.t.m.
Select a mirror site - "Main Site" is good
You will be prompted from here for some information about your network - if you have already set up your network it's easy. If you're reading this in PC-BSD, then you are set up already.
You may have made some different decisions along the way - I can't list them all, but just be logical - it's a good system.
Don't get frustrated if you get "lost" in the /stand/sysinstall program. It can get a little confusing sometimes, as making a choice can take you back to a previous screen and leave you wondering if you actually selected anything. Just do it again and get a feel for it.
Once all your source has come down, go and read this Excellent guide. I think PC-BSD uses the "Generic" kernel base.

Have fun and tell me how you go please.
Thanks for the info.

19.4.8 Compile and Install a New Kernel
On modern versions of FreeBSD it is important to build world before building a new kernel.
Do I really need to "build world" first? What is world? how is it different from kernel?
Should I following instruction in Chapter 8 or 19?
