Just about every day, my FreeBSD system hangs. I set up dumpdev/dumpdir, but I never get anything in /var/crashes. I'm not sure what to do to debug the problem. It usually happens during a 'gmake -j4...', but has happened at other times as well.
What can I do to get more information about what is causing the hang? I have the following in rc.conf to try to get a kernel crash dump: dumpdev="/dev/ad0s1b" dumpdir="/var/crash" And I'm running a kernel with debug symbols. I'm running FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p5 with 2 athlon mp processors, using the GENERIC kernel config file (except I commented out INET6 so that firefox will resolve domains in a timely fashion): ACPI APIC Table: <PTLTD APIC > Timecounter "i8254" frequency 1193182 Hz quality 0 CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) MP 2600+ (2000.08-MHz 686-class CPU) Origin = "AuthenticAMD" Id = 0x6a0 Stepping = 0 Features=0x383fbff<FPU,VME,DE,PSE,TSC,MSR,PAE,MCE,CX8,APIC,SEP,MTRR,PGE,MCA,CMOV,PAT,PSE36,MMX,FXSR,SSE> AMD Features=0xc0480000<MP,AMIE,DSP,3DNow!> real memory = 1073217536 (1023 MB) avail memory = 1033003008 (985 MB) FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 2 CPUs cpu0 (BSP): APIC ID: 1 cpu1 (AP): APIC ID: 0 ioapic0 <Version 1.1> irqs 0-23 on motherboard Thanks.
