Had FreeBSD5.1 on a box that had a physical hard-drive failure last week. So, this time setup the box using mirrored 200GB drives using vinum sub-disks. Setup multiple vinum partitions to help limit any file system corruption. One of those partitions was /dev/vinum/ports which points to /usr/ports.
Once the machine was setup with a minimal install, then did a restore from the image made before the original hdd failure. I've never done that before, so there is a possibility that I might have restored a file that I should not have. Got ports updated using cvsup. Then did a make reinstall of /usr/ports/x11/kde3. The last thing I saw before fatal trap & reboot was the following: ------------------- ===> Extracting for libxml2-2.5.8_1 >> Checksum OK for gnome/libxml2-2.5.8.tar.bz2. Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode fault virtual address = 0x14 fault code = supervisor write, page not present instruction pointer = 0x8:0xc02d15d9 stack pointer = 0x10:0xcdb35aa8 frame pointer = 0x10:0xcdb35adc code segment = base 0x0, limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b = DPL 0, pres 1, def32 1, gran 1 processor eflags = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0 current process = 39 (buffdaemon) trap number = 12 panic: page fault syncing disks, buffers remaining... panic: bremfree: removing a buffer not on a queue Terminate ACPI Automatic reboot in 15 seconds - ------------------- Any tips on how to debug this or if there is an article that discusses how to do this I would be very grateful for any help. The only way I know how to fix is to rebuild everything - including setting up the vinum volume up again. Takes too long, hoping for a better solution. Clearly a newbie.
