Actually, it's rebooting randomly during installs or upgrades only. It did it once due to spam assassign, but that was a long time back. I did however encounter something of interest that might give us some insight into this. Even though I'd periodically have failed builds or installs, or even reboots at random during this, I always seemed to get a lot of this one ruby error. Here's two examples.


/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.6/pkginfo.rb:45: [BUG] rb_gc_mark(): unknown data type 0x7(0x8053e04) corrupted object
ruby 1.6.8 (2003-03-26) [i386-freebsd4]


/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.6/pkgdb.rb:336: [BUG] rb_gc_mark(): unknown data type 0x7(0x82024dc) corrupted object
ruby 1.6.8 (2003-03-26) [i386-freebsd4]


I've since done a pkgdb -F to see if that would help and it did find one small error in the database. So not sure if that fixed it or not. I am however fully completed with all the upgrades after 5 painful hours, so that's at least good. That means I shouldn't have to touch this for a while longer at which this problem may crop up its ugly head. I'll keep an eye on it and report anything new I find. I don't expect this to be easy to solve. But we'll keep looking for clues.

Speaking of clues, is there a way to log everything that goes on in a TTY session? I've noticed that when this thing crashes it prints something to the screen (I can't see it cause I'm away at another desk when it does it) about the crash and a reboot in 15 seconds but I'm never fast enough over there to catch it. I want to try and catch that in a file if possible so I better know what's wrong with this thing. I'm sure it has something to do with adding a switch to the logging system, but I can't find where to add the switch and which one would do it. Any input would be welcome. Thanks.
