many thanks for the quick answer, even you are resolving the last hicks 
before 5.2 is released .....

Hmm, I don't really understand that, cause the downloaded image burn to 
a cdrw don't boot. If I use the same cd and rerecord it with 

mkisofs .... -b /cdrom/floppies/boot.flp /cdrom

it boots! Even the FreeBSD Mall 5.X CD's don't boot, but the 4.X do.

I've tracked it down. The problem was induced due to mess in the 
boot loader and BIOS disk order. The smart boot loader was not loaded 
from the first BIOS disk (ad0) but from the first SCSI disk. So it 
thinks the ad disk was BIOS HD3 ......

After fixing that all runs well out of the box! Sorry!

I've just trying to migrate my config and scripts from 4.9 to 5.2 so 
I'm able to fix the xperfmon3 compile problem.

However, the usb mouse didn't work. Booting in 4.9 all runs well. In 
5.2 the usbdev -v hangs about 5 seconds on the first hub. The mouse is 
recognized, but the cursor didn't move. (I've also cvsup to the latest 
sources and build my own kernel).


143130 : usbdevs -v
Controller /dev/usb0:
addr 1: self powered, config 1, UHCI root hub(0x0000), VIA(0x0000), rev 1.00
 port 1 addr 2: low speed, power 100 mA, config 1, PS2/USB Browser Combo 
Mouse(0x0011), Cypress Sem(0x05fe), rev 0.10
 port 2 powered
Controller /dev/usb1:
addr 1: self powered, config 1, OHCI root hub(0x0000), NEC(0x0000), rev 1.00
 port 1 powered
 port 2 powered
Controller /dev/usb2:
addr 1: self powered, config 1, OHCI root hub(0x0000), NEC(0x0000), rev 1.00
 port 1 powered
 port 2 powered


The same output, but also the USB2 device is recognized.

Any ideas? (vidcontrol -m on, moused parameters, are o.k. usbd also 
starts the mouse .....)

Best regards
