Just wondering if anyone is running FreeBSD 7.1 on a Dell PowerEdge 850 with SATA raid, I have 5.4 installed on one now, because there was a problem with the Intel ich5 sata chipset on 6.x branch at the time I built the server. I don't remember the error message, but I believe the problem had something to do with the chipset not returning a command that FreeBSD was waiting for so it would hang on boot trying to mount the hard drives. It was quite annoying though in that the entire installation runs but then it fails to boot after the restart. Which is why I was hoping someone else could tell me if FreeBSD 7.1 will run before I wipe out the existing 5.4 installation.
In case it helps here is the output about the chipset from pciconf -lv pc...@pci0:30:0: class=0x060401 card=0x00000050 chip=0x244e8086 rev=0xe1 hdr=0x01 vendor = 'Intel Corporation' device = '82801BA/CA/DB/DBL/EB/ER (ICH2/3/4/4-L/5/5R), 6300ESB Hub Interface to PCI Bridge' class = bridge subclass = PCI-PCI Thanks, Dean Weimer Network Administrator Orscheln Management Co. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
