Hi,
How do you block this large range of ip addresses from different subnet?
IPFW only allows 65536 rules while this will probably use up a few hundred
thousands of lines.

I'm also trying to add this into my proxy configuration file, ss5.conf but
it doesn't allow me to add this large number.

IS this the limitation of IPF or FreeBSD? How do I work around this?

That's not an answer obviously.  Error 28 is

#define ENOSPC          28              /* No space left on device */

This seems like a bug to me: when a filesystem fills you shouldn't be
getting this behaviour.  Can you please follow the directions in the
developers handbook chapter on kernel debugging, and when you trigger
a hang, break to DDB from the console and force a dump, then file a PR
and make the core file available to the developers.  Unfortunately
unless a developer can replicate the behaviour, providing access to a
core is the only real debugging option.

Thanks,
Kris

Probably the list admins figure that anyone who posts here is an
advanced user type who understands how to setup spam filters that
work.

I tested with another hard disk, the one on which I'd installed
FreeBSD in the past. I put it on another IDE channel but the same
things happened. Now I wonder if it's my IDE controller which has
problems.

Some information about the hardware:

I have the intel 3945 on my Sony laptop. Works for me with
Damien Bergamini driver 20070121-wpi-freebsd.tar.gz and
FreeBSD-6.2-RELEASE. There are a lot of error messages but it works
nonetheless. However i suspect that it produces memory corruption in
conjunction with the display card, which freezes from time to time
when the 3945 is activated and i am running X. I have never seen a crash
when the 3945 is shut down or i am running on console. The most recent
driver by B. Close is
20070715-wpi-freebsd-7.0-current.tgz
but it works only with FreeBSD-7 so i cannot test it. I have tested
other B. Close drivers, none worked.

As for the video, an Intel card is highly recommended, it works very
well on laptops and is sufficiently powerful to run things like compiz.
There are very good available video modes on console, contrary to many
other models.

Or doesn't; but wants to.

I tell people that if they "just want a Windows replacement", they should
stick with Windows or use a Mac because they want better service from the
computer without any growth in skills or responsibilities on their part.

A core strength of the *nix operating systems and communities is the
administrator/users' desire for control and acceptance of responsibilities
that come with that control.  System administration is not a spectator
sport.

I've made a quick look-see through my copies of "The Complete FreeBSD" and
"Absolute BSD" and can't find the reference, but I recall reading
somewhere in my 4.x days that FreeBSD used a different algorithm to write
to the /var directory, if it was on its own filesystem, because /var was
written to a lot (holding logs and all.) Because of this, and all the way
up to 6.2 today, I put /var on its own filesystem, after / and swap.
Where the old AIX wonks used to call the "outer middle" of the disk. Was
this different algorithm really the case? And, now with UFS2, is it still
the case? I still put pgsql/data on /var.

Hi all,

I just installed X (xorg 7.2) and am using FluxBox. It's working well
and there are no problems. However, the mouse gets suddenly detached
and immediately reattached. I can't say exactly how often this
happens, roughly about 6~7 times a day.

# dmesg | tail -n 4

Is it sign of a problem? In fact I don't care about the hardware as it
can be easily replaced, I'm afraid that there's something wrong with
software.

Thanks in advance for your help.
