Do I need to be concerned about these boot entries in /var/log/messages (running -CURRENT i386):
kernel: pci1: <PCI bus> on pcib1 -> kernel: $PIR: ROUTE_INTERRUPT failed. kernel: pci1: <display, VGA> at device 0.0 (no driver attached) and I presume to be related: kernel: vga0: <Generic ISA VGA> at port 0x3c0-0x3df iomem 0xa0000-0xbffff on isa0 -> kernel: unknown: <PNP0303> can't assign resources (port) -> kernel: unknown: <PNP0a03> can't assign resources (port) -> kernel: unknown: <PNP0501> can't assign resources (port) -> kernel: unknown: <PNP0700> can't assign resources (port) -> kernel: unknown: <PNP0401> can't assign resources (port) -> kernel: unknown: <PNP0501> can't assign resources (port) The system is prone to random lock-up (not observed previously when running 5.2-RELEASE). The lockup can be induced by running xmms - quite quickly when playing from a streaming source and playing through the sound card. However the lockup will also occur at random although it has always been observed to happen as a result of user activity (I don't recall having returned to find the system rebooted). Aside from running xmms, this lockup will usually not occur until after some (variable) hours of use. Another symptom I get is that because of the unclean unmounts of / and /usr, the delayed fsck kicks in at about the same time that my desktop session is reloading. This currently results in evolution-alarm-notify crashing. I can get no crashdump info from bug-buddy, however. If the background fsck isn't running (e.g. if I wait for it to complete before logging in to the desktop), I don't get the crash. I don't get any log entries or core dumps to work with and am currently at a loss as to the likely cause or resolution. Any and all tips, clues, hints, pointers, instructions, directives and derisive comments appreciated. Wayne  Recently the system booted without (the BIOS) finding the soundcard (this happens very occasionally, nothing to do with FBSD). Curious, I ran xmms from the streaming source and set the output to write to a file. I left this running for around two hours and it had written around 1.5G before I stopped it. I can't run xmms and play through the soundcard (Xitel Storm Platinum/Aureal Vortex 2) for anywhere near that long without experiencing a lock up.  The system always reboots itself, about 20 seconds after the lockup occurs.  These symptoms (programs crashing while the destop is reloading and the background fsck is running) have been varied, changing as I've recompiled various ports. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
