Since you suspect hardware, can you physically switch bge2/3/4/5 around in the PCI chain? Like, now bge4 becomes new bge2. If the OS still gives problems from the new bge3 onwards, one might suspect the PCI card or something in PCI interface (ordering/bios interrupt clashes/ X) at which point I'd take it to -hardware or -stable with a verbose boot message attached. -- Mel People using reply to all on lists, must think I need 2 copies. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
