i'm the only one in the office running CURRENT, and since it is hanging more than 5.1 was, i told everyone else to wait before upgrading. but a coworker (with different hardware [single processor], but also AMD-based) does get hangs like mine. > 2) Have you checked the RAM with memtest86 or similar? yes. > 3) Have you ensured the hardware isn't overheating? i've checked the cpu temp and it is fine. > 4) Is the box in question on a UPS? yes. > These seem to be the most common problems with FreeBSD hanging.
