Hello,(sorry, don't know whether kernel problems should go to questions or hackers, or both)..
This has been a long-standing problem of mine, but I always ignored it hoping it would go away on its own with a future 6.x release, but it remains...
No matter whether I boot into safe mode or regular mode, with all kernel extensions disabled in /boot/loader.conf, I get the following panic late at boot of a fresh RELENG_6_2 kernel (with only a few services left to bring up). The 6.x kernels I've tried all build and installed cleanly without any errors...
WARNING: Device driver " Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode fault virtual address = 0x400000 fault code = supervisor read, page not present instruction pointer = 0x20:0xc06d4614 stack pointer = 0x28:0xf015491c frame pointer = 0x28:0xf015491c code segment = base 0x0, limit 0xffffff, type 0x1b = DPL 0, pres 1, def32 1, gran 1 processor eflags = interupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0 current process = 898 (kldload) trap number = 12 panic: page fault uptime: 36s cannot dump. No dump device defined automatic reboot in 15 seconds
This problem does not occur within any 5.x OS for me. I would certainly like to resolve this issue now, but this sort of debugging is over my head beyond running fsck (which I've tried). Any ideas here?
Thanks in advance for your help! ----------- Joe Auty NetMusician: web publishing software for musicians http://www.netmusician.org [EMAIL PROTECTED]
