Nothing really has changed to my box (no new software, configuration issues). I just like rebuilding world/kernel to the latest -STABLE at least once in week. And about two weeks ago I started getting strange freezes. Since then I've tried doing anything to get away from those stupid freezes, but nothing helps.
On random time periods my box freezes, but not like the usual way when I can't do anything. It drops all network connections (this box is also router), so I can't connect with SSH anymore or use Internet through it. It mystical freezes everything else - if I had opened some xterms (x11 also on this box) then can write some command (for example "ls") - it may or may not be executed, but what's strange - after execution it doesn't return to shell, it even doesn't react on ^C, ^Z or anything at all. Some applications I can close, some I cant and they just ignore my attempts. Sometimes I can even ctrl+alt+backspace (it gets executed after some while), sometimes I can't. Same with alt+ctrl+f1-f9 - it may work, it may not work. Only thing I can do is press "power button", but then (again - sometimes) I get: "acpi: suspend request ignored (not ready yet)". Then I just press it for 5 seconds and it powers off. After reboot fsck & stuff. It's just driving my crazy. But what's interesting - music keeps playing (line-in). Both pf (firewall/routing) and sound card is loaded as modules, music keeps playing, but network is unresponsive. And this box usually freezes when I'm asleep or when I'm not physically using it (ssh only). I'm really desperate. I've tried reinstalling from scratch, rebuilding world, using even GENERIC, but nothing helps. I'm using lastest FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE (recompiled even yesterday, but got crash again). Box is AMD Sempron. Please - really - any suggestions? I've run FreeBSD for years but I don't know what to do now with this situation. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
