Hi, I'm running freebsd 4.8-STABLE, I installed it a little while ago and it has been running fine as my broadband router for a few weeks now, no problems.
This morning there was a powercut, and when I came to the machine and attached a monitor, I discovered that it was making it through the BIOS, getting to the spinning -\|/-\|/ prompt, where it freezes on the first | every time. If I press enter quick enough at the right moment I can get the boot prompt, but then the | appears and it freezes. I can still turn numlock on and off (a sign I've gone by for years that the PC hasn't totally locked...) and ctrl-alt-del still reboots but it's clear that the machine is not going anywhere further. I can chuck a CD drive in and boot from the freebsd install disk or knoppix or whatever will help me, does anyone have any idea as to how I can fix it or what log file I should examine etc? Any help much appreciated, Neil. ________________________________________________________________________ Download Yahoo!
