Same here, HP Laserjet 4000 duplex. It has something to do with the parallel port, but can be ignored, I think. There has been a workaround suggested, but I'm not sure I'm providing the correct setting which has to be placed in /boot/loader.conf: hw.intr_storm_threshold="1000" I didn't have this message when using parallel printer on FreeBSD 5. As you stated, the message repeats many times, but doesn't seem to have any effect on printing. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
