(Originally asked on -hardware and -smp but no one seemed to have any
ideas. Repeating here to the larger group in hopes of some answers. TIA.)
Intel D946GZIS MOBO w/ICH7 SATA-II support
WDC WD2500JS-00NCB1 250G Hard Drive that claims to do 3G/s
Pentium D @ 3.2GHz
In addition to the on-board peripherals, the two available
PCI slots have an Adaptec 2940 U/UW SCSI controller and
a 3Com 3C901 card in them respectively.
Running FBSD 6.2-STABLE as of yesterday. Kernel is SMP.
I've run into a problem that makes no sense to me and I suspect
is related to how SMP works (or, then again, maybe not):
1) When booting FBSD 6.2, right after the second CPU is started
the system hangs for about 45 seconds and then proceeds normally.
This happens with GENERIC-Release, SMP-Stable, and SMP-Release kernels.
During this wait, the floppy goes active for some reason. It's
as if the system is "hunting" for something.
Other strange anomalies I've noted:
2) If I try to boot the 4.11-Release CD, it gets partway through
the boot and then spits out:
RTC BIOS diagnostic error 80<clock battery>
I've replaced the RTC battery and still get the same error.
I get no such error with 6.2
3) Both the MOBO and drive are SATA-300 rated, but 6.2 insists that
the drive is running at SATA-150. I have verified that the drive
has no jumper forcing it into this mode.
4) I *cannot* get xorg 7.2 to work with the onboard video.
If I configure it as a VESA video system, all is well.
If I try to tell it that I am using i810 video, I get this:

Fatal server error:

This makes no sense given that I have allocated 128M for video memory.
Anyone have ideas on what is going on here? (I've DAGS and found nothing
like this in the archives.)
