Do you have X running or any additional cards/devices/drivers in use in the machine when this occurs? Which ethernet are you using etc. > This is in console or in X.

I have been running a ASUS A7N8X-VM (MTX version of your board) in my home firewall for a couple of months. There are some occasional issues with the USB causing lockups, eg. turning my USB printer off and on again can sometimes cause a complete hang. Having ACPI enabled can also cause interrupt related problems in some configurations. > I am hoping someone with a similiar set-up (these are very popular modern > componets) can share experiances or a bios set up or kernel config, or > other information. I really want to run freebsd on this box. Apart from the issues mentioned above I have had no problems with this hardware. -- Seeya...Q -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- _____ / Quinton Dolan [EMAIL PROTECTED] __ __/ / / __/ / / / __ / _/ / / Gold Coast, QLD, Australia __/ __/ __/ ____/ / - / Ph: +61 419 729 806 _______ / _\ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
