Hi FreeBSD Team, I was turned on by your operating system and how smoothly it worked so I decided to give it a try at home. Unfortunately during install of 4.8 I get a "Panic: Page Fault" one line error while it is installing the base around 98% but the error may move to the early installation of the docs. I can get around this error by doing a minimum install. However the OS gets back at me by core dumping sh every time I start up forcing me into single user mode. >From there SH will core dump periodically and so will login it is very annoying. I have tried to get ports.tar.gz but the ftp program core dumps on me. I have tried pkg_add -r cvsup but that either core dumps or even freezes but I am able to get out of the freeze by ctrl + z
Now installing the full version of FreeBSD 4.8 I get a: Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode fault virtual address = 0xf3f980ac fault code = supervisor write, page not present instruction pointer = 0x8:0xc021667f stack pointer = 0x10:0xd3108c6c frame pointer = 0x10:0xd3108c7c 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 = 4 (bufdaemon) interrupt mask = bio panic: page fault Upfile 38m 27s An other time while trying to install the full version of FreeBSD 4.8 I'll get a one liner: Panic: page fault Waiting for processes to stop... // or something to that effect Giving up on 158 buffers <Reboots> I have tried 5.1 but that has Signal 10, 11 and / or 12 errors during install. Your help is greatly appreciated Jonathan Graefe Here is what my boot CD from the ftp.freebsd.org 4.8-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso CD Says on Startup: Preloaded elf kernel "kernel" at 0Xc0821000 Preloaded mfsroot "/mfsroot" at 0xc0821084 Pentium Pro MTRR support enabled md0: Preloaded image </mfsroot> 4423680 bytes at 0xc03e7274 md1: Malloc disk Using $PIR table. 9 entries at 0Xc00fcff0 npx0: <math processor> on motherboard npx0: INT 16 interface pcib0: <Host to PCI bridge> on motherboard pci0: <PCI bus> on pcib0 pcib1: <PCI to PCI bridge (ventor=1106 device=b198)> at device 1.0 on pci0 pci1: <PCI bus> on pcib1 pci1: <NVidea model 0110 graphics accelerator at 0.0 irq 11 pci: <unknown card> (vendor=0x1106, dev=0x3149) at 15.0 irq 11 atapci0: <VIA Apollo ATA controller> port 0Xa800-0xa80f at device 15.1 on pci0 ata0: at 0x1f0 irq 14 on atapci0 ata1: at 0x170 irq 15 on atapci0 uhci0: <CIA 83C572 USB controller> port 0xac00-0xac1f irqll at device 16.0 on pci0 usb0: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> port 0xac00-0xac1f irq 11 at device 16.0 on pci0 usb0: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> on uhci0 usb0: USB revision 1.0 uhub0: VIA UHCI root hub, class 9/0, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 1 uhub0: 2 ports with 2 removable, self powered uhci1: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> port 0xb00-0xb01f irq 11 at device 16.1 on pci0 usb1: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> on uhci1 usb1: USB revision 1.0 uhub1: 2ports with 2 removable, self powered uhci2: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> port 0xb400-0xb41f irq 5 at device 16.2 on pci0 usb2:<VIA 83C572 USB controller> on uhci2 usb2: USB revision 1.0 uhub2: 2 ports with 2 removable, self powered uhci3: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> port 0xb800-0xb81f irq 5 at device 16.3 on pci0 usb3: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> on uhci3 usb3: USB revision 1.0 uhub3: VIA UHCI root hub, class 9/0, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 1 uhub3: 2 ports with 2 removable, self powered pci0: <USB controller> at 16.4 irq 10 isab0: <PCI to ISA bridge (vendor=1106 device=3227)} at ddevice 17.0 on pci0 isa0: <ISA bus> on isab0 pci0: <unknown card> (vendor=0x1106, dev = 0x3059) at 17.5 irq 10 vr0: <VIA VT6102 Rhine II 10/100BaseTX> port 0xc00-0xc0ff mem 0xe2001000-0xe20010ff irq 11 at device 18.0 on pci0 vr0: Ethernet address: 00:50:8d:4f:03:da miibus0: <MII bus> on vr0 ukphy0 <Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface> on miibus0 ukphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto orm0: <Option ROM> at iomem 0xc000-0xcc7ff on isa0 fdc0: <NEC 72065B or clone> at port 0x3f0-0x3f5,0x3f7 irq 6 drq 2 on isa0 fdc0: FIFO enabled, 8 bytes threshold fd0: <1440-kb 3.5" drive> on fdc0 drive 0 atkbdc0: <Keyboard controller (i8042)> at port 0x60,0x64 on isa0 atkbd0: <AT Keyboard> flags 0x1 irq 1 on atkbdc0 kbd0 at atkbd0 psm0: <PS/2 Mouse> irq 12 on atkbdc0 psm0: model Generic PS/2 mouse, device ID 0 vga0: <Generic ISA VGA> at port 0x3c0-0x3df iomem 0xa0000-0xbffff on isa0 sc0: <System console> at flags 0X100 on isa0 sc0: VGA <16 virtual consoles, flags=0x300> sio0: type 16550A sio1: configured irq 3 on it bitmap of probed irqs 0 ppc0: <Parallel port> at port 0x378-0x37f irq 7 on isa0 ppc0: SMC-like chipset (ECP/EPP/PS2/NIBBLE) in COMPATIBLE mode ppc0: FIFO with 16/16/9 bytes threshold plip0: <PLIP network interface> on ppbus0 ad0: 38166MB <WDC WD400BB-00DEA0> [77545/16/63] at ata0-master WDMA2 acd0: CDROM <CD-ROM 45X> at ata1-master PIO4 Mounting root from ufs:/dev/md0c /stand/sysinstall running as init on vty0 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- --- SDU WebTeam 301.314.9476 [EMAIL PROTECTED] 1208B Cambridge Hall Webmaster and webship professor: Jonathan Graefe [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
