I have a fresh install of 4.7 RELEASE on a AMD K6-200 with 32 MB RAM. And, I keep getting kernel panics.
The first sign of any problem was while I was installing. I checked the CD for md5sum errors. But, it was ok. So, I tried an FTP (passive) install. Still, every attempt crapped out until I finally selected the minimal install. All that I can remember it would say was, "syncing disks..." Now that I have an installation, another problem occurs when I run "portsdb -Uu". It get about 5 minutes through and then it panics and does an automatic reboot. I've tried to capture the messages to screen. But, it usually reboots before I can write it all down. One message on the screen that I haven't been able to catch completely says something like: "panic: vm_object_deallocated allocated too many times". Another message is longer and stays on screen. It says: <quote> Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode fault virtual address = 0xc4427f42 fault code = supervisor write, page not present instruction pointer = 0x8:0xc0376d4f stack pointer = 0x10:0xc41f2c88 frame pointer = 0x10:0xc41f2c90 code segment = base 0x0, limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b = DPL 0, pres 1, def32 1, gran 1 processor eflags = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0 current process = 84538 (sh) interrupt mask = none trap number =12 panic: page fault syncing disks... </qoute> My guess is that I have some bad memory or something. But, that's just a very uneducated guess. Thanks for any help, Darren To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
