The problem persisted so I rebuilt with the debugging options you gave me. Other than the firewire console option if a panic occurs where do I go to obtain a backtrace? Yes ado1a is dying with a complete failure it seems so I am guessing I am going to need to look into the firewire option. But I would like to look into the conventional backtrace retrieval first. -- Wil Hatfield _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
