I'm seeing the same problem on my dual Athlon box. The freezes are totally random AFAICT, sometimes when the machine is just idling.

I've not used any CPU-specific make options but may try setting some to see if it makes a difference. One thing though, I only have

cpu             I686_CPU

set, not I486_CPU and I586_CPU as well, maybe that could be a problem?

AFAIK, that's a proper setting for Athlons. What I recommend is you shouldn't play with make options before setting up a stable system (sorry if that's too obvious).

I'm running -CURRENT and the build I did on 8 April didn't have this problem but it started with the next build I did a couple of weeks ago. I've cvsup'd and rebuilt a couple of times since, the last on 25 July, but the problem persists.

I don't have much experience with CURRENT (and with SMP) but if you didn't change the config files it looks like something in the code (this is possible in CURRENT, right?). Only thing I can think of is reading freebsd-current and searching the archives. Not much from me, sorry.

I've noticed something; it only seems to freeze when I'm in X. I had the machine up for over 30 hours at the command line yesterday whilst I upgraded some ports, including KDE (which was why I did it from the command line). I rebooted it when I'd finished. I've never had it stay up anywhere near that long since the 8 April build. Some conflict between XFree86 (4.3.0) and -CURRENT/5.2.1-RELEASE?

Also, my machine dual-boots with XP and that stays up for days at a time so, in my case at least, I doubt it's hardware, plus I've run memtest86 and it was OK.

Thanks for the input. I'm going to subscribe to freebsd-current and search the archives.
