Yes, I am. The BIOS is the latest -RU revision (if I remembered correctly) with custom patch (original HPT366 part of BIOS replaced by version 1.28-beta) - but I think this patch has no effecto to FreeBSD. No ACPI is enabled in BIOS configuration, KERNEL is custom. The -current environment isn't used for any work, just for periodic cvsup && makeworld installworld The SMP kernels are unable to run several weeks due a problem with Giant lock, but it is working now. The only current -current's problem known to me is that linc is broken when compilled with -O3 as some pthread stubs functions is optimized-out from resulting library (e.g. you can't sucessfully link other programs, also dynamically linked binaries doesn't load and run due unresolved symbols). > > Even make -j1 buildworld with the SMP kernel ends with a complete > > freeze of the machine (the kernel does not go to a panic where I > > could try a backtrace) > > Exactly! Hard Lock, no panic, no keyboard, no choices other than = > reset. NAK. My BP6 did it with no problem.
