I wasn't sure if -questions or -current was the right group, but I searched both before posting.
I'm trying to begin testing FreeBSD-7.0-Beta2, and I have a mixture of Intel and AMD-based machines that I work with. I'm using the i386 release. I've previously used FreeBSD-4.9R and 6.2R for i386 on these machines, but cannot get 7.0-Beta2 to work on the AMD machines. These are 100- and 1000-series dual-core Opteron CPUs. I've tried: Updating using source from 6.2-Release Installing from 7.0-Beta2 CD Installing from 7.0-CURRENT-200710-i386 snapshot CD I see a variety of errors, including: 1) BTX Halted 2) errors when running /bin/sh from /etc/rc /libexec/ld-elf.so.1 Undefined symbol "opterr" referenced from COPY relocation in sh /libexec/ld-elf.so.1 Invalid file format (on multiple binaries) various other "undefined symbol" messages signal 10, signal 11 on multiple binaries I've tried both uni-processor and SMP kernels, as well as the GENERIC kernel supplied with the base installation. I've also tried disabling ACPI. There's no "one error condition" that I can identify, it seems to change each time I boot, it's quite erratic, and most errors don't result in a panic. I have of course tested multiple pieces of hardware, and I've also performed the install on an Intel-based machine and then moved the disk to the AMD. In all cases, I encountered failures immediately upon running a few small commands (assuming the login prompt even appears). Has anyone successfully used 7.0-Beta2 for i386 on AMD Opteron-based platform? Any suggestions for tracking down the problem? Thanks! -ms _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
