I have 6.1-RELEASE installed on a disk in an external USB 2.0 disk
chassis. It successfully boots a computer and becomes da0. However, it is
not able to shutdown or reboot, as the system freezes before it shuts
--- begin ---
# shutdown -h now
System shutdown time has arrived
Shutting down daemon processes:.
Shutting down local daemons:.
Writing entropy file:.

Syncing disks, vnodes remaining...8 4 4 2 2 0 0 done
All buffers synced.
--- end ---
This is the point where system stops doing things and not responding to
anything but five-secs-powerbutton.
The system was installed by issuing
1. Regular FreeBSD install on internal ATA
2. fdisk, bsdlabel, mount USB-disk
3. dump | restore
4. Fix fstab
The computer is a Dell Latitued D400 (the problem is reproducable on a
number of other computers). The harddisk is a Maxtor DiamondMax 10 250GB
IDE. The chassis is Amitech something.
I appreciate any ideas!
