Taking this thread a little further since it is right in line with my todo list for tonight. I currently have 6.1 installed on a Supermicro machine with two ata drives. There has been a major bug that causes frequent kernel panics which started at 6.0. The following build options seemed to help with quick rebooting and recovery. But of course this week the reboots aren't going to well and it is definately time to upgrade to 6.2-RELEASE (RELENG_6_2) in hopes that whatever is causing the kernel panics is software related and has been fixed.
makeoptions DEBUG=-g options DDB, KDB, GDB options INVARIANTS options INVARIANT_SUPPORT options WITNESS_KDB options WITNESS_SKIPSPIN options BREAK_TO_DEBUGGER,ALT_BREAK_TO_DEBUGGER options KDB_UNATTENDED options QUOTA options PMAP_SHPGPERPROC=601 options TCP_DROP_SYNFIN options SMP options IPFILTER options IPFILTER_LOG options IPFILTER_DEFAULT_BLOCK options IPFIREWALL options IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE options DUMMYNET options IPSTEALTH options HZ=2000 #options RESTARTABLE_PANICS options PANIC_REBOOT_WAIT_TIME=5 Will some of these options still work with 6.2-RELEASE or should I omit something here in order to use the 6.2 release properly? I am sure there are some since I am going from a 6.1 prerelease to a release. I am just not sure which ones should be omitted. I still want the capability of the machine rebooting unattended if a panic should occur. Here is some more info in case anybody sees anything that I don't regarding those panics. Never a single vmcore so I have found debugging quite useless. But of course I do understand that I have alot to learn about debugging. Not my forte. ### uname -a ### 123.domain.net 6.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 6.1-PRERELEASE #0: Thu Apr 20 16:01:16 PDT 2006 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/CUSTOM-KERNEL i386 ### dmesg.today ### Copyright (c) 1992-2006 The FreeBSD Project.
