Hi all, I have FreeBSD installed on a ~6 year old IBM NetVista box; it serves a headless gateway/server/WAP for my home network. I upgraded it from v6 to v7 in mid January, building a custom kernel with altq and the new scheduler. It has been running fine since early December.
However, three times during the past few days, it has stop functioning. The WAN connection dies and I can no longer ssh into the box. However, I can still ping it, and I can still ssh from one LAN client to another via the FreeBSD box. IOW, it seems to be dying, but not freezing, if that makes any sense. Alas, there is nothing in /var/messages to indicate what happens. I don't think it is succumbing to excessive load; it has a 1.6 MHz Pentium IV, 512 MB RAM, rarely uses swap, and the load averages tend to be very light. At this point, I assume a hardware issue, and I can have the box tested by a local whitebox shop later this week, but I am open to other avenues to purse as well. Thanks in advance for any ideas. -- Colin Brace Amsterdam http://lim.nl _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
