Looks like the DMA errors are back in 6.1-RC with ATA or at least similar DMA errors. The new one froze my machine with an error like "Error while performing DMA_WRITE command". A new twist to the WRITE_DMA Timeouts of 5.4. I am starting to think that they aren't going to get the ATA issues all worked out anytime soon so they are changing the errors. ;-) And of course no automatic reboot on panic. -- Wil Hatfield _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
