I have made some further tests with another ASUS board, with an INTEL ICH7R chipset. Installation of FreeBSD 6.1 went fine. I shut down the computer, disconnect a disk, reboot, and... And no reboot at all. Kernel panic. The ar raid driver seems to be very buggy... I'm looking forward to receiving my 3WARE RAID controllers... --------------- Philippe Lang Attik System _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
