5.2.1 freezes on a nforce2 mainboard with apci, I have a nforce2 (same abit board) based machine here running freebsd, never got the 5.2.1-release to work with acpi.I have nforce2-based motherboard Abit NF7 and run 5.2.1-RELEASE on that system. I have tried to enable APIC by compiling kernel with 'device apic' (both with and without SMP option, although this is a UP system), but system just freezes during boot with it. Everything works pretty well without APIC, I was just curious about getting it to work.
I found this discussion:
and I have also found numerous reports on nforce2+APIC lockup problem in Linux and some patches that were reported to help with it.
So, I want to find out if anything changed with respect to this in FreeBSD, maybe some patches/workarounds, or success stories about FreeBSD+nforce2+APIC.
Also some notes about my lockup. It happens at this point (exerpt for non-verbose non-APIC dmesg):

Also, when system freezes keyboard LEDs still work properly and cursor disappears when I press Scroll Lock, but arrow and PgUp/PgDown do not work; if I try Alt-F<N> system speacker emits monotonic sound that can not be turned off (except by reset, of course).
I am ready to provide any additional information. Unfortunately I am not able to use serial console, so I can't give much info for APIC-enabled case.
It was fixed a little while after the release, 5-current has been running on the nforce2 for a while.
If you can wait untill the 5.3-release,which should be in about 2~3 weeks, (and run 5.2.1 without acpi for that time) I would do that, 5.3 no longer has the lock-up issue.
