Hi Mark and list members,
I am experiencing the same problem on my dual PII-450 SP700 Compaq Pro
workstation. After poking around on Google, it is pointing to the FreeBSD
and a i8254 programmable interupt timer. In my case the time is lagging
behind 10 times! What does your:
#time sleep 10
Ok, I have recompiled my kernel and excluded the support for SMP and ACPI.
All my weird problems with slow time have disappeared. The kernel time
stays dead on along with the ntpd. The uptime shows the correct amount of
days. It was funny to see after 3 days that the machine had been up
Gee, who would have thought that it was the keyboard. Thanks for your
ideas. I recompiled the kernel (Compaq SP700 dual PII-450) following the
NOTES guidelines and your email, with these enabled:
# To make an SMP kernel, the next two are needed
options SMP #
No clue from sysctl -a. Yes, I've looked through archives and google.
Since I don't see a lot of performance improvement from using the second
CPU, I will leave this issue alone for now. Hopefully, someone will post a
sweet solution to this bugging issue.
Thanks for your help,
Since it is a gateway/proxy/firewall, you will be running some firewall
rules. Use 'netstat -a' command, and check which ports are in Listen
stage. Or use 'lsof | grep Listen' command.
After that you will need to add a firewall rule to _not_ allow incoming
connections to the Squid's
What does /etc/hosts show?
/etc/dnscache/env/IP (or whatever directory you're using)
/etc/tinydns/env/IP ( -- -- )
/etc/dnscache/env/ROOT ( -- -- )
/etc/tinydns/env/ROOT ( -- -- )
ls -la /etc/dnscache/root/ip/
Do you use 2 assigned IP's to one NIC?
I know that would be coincidental, but you know what your running CPU temp
is (check your BIOS)? OS freeze-ups sometimes occur due to inadequate
cooling of the CPU. Also maybe your computer is close to a heat source?
Are you using the same computer case?
What is your power supply rated at?
Your temps are fine. Go to the hard drive manufacturer's web site and
download a drive check utility. Once you run it, it will either say okay
or spit out an error code that you can use to RMA your hard drive.
If a hard drive locks up, you should still see errors on stdout, however
It is in Russian, but you will figure it out by looking at config files. I
installed it on 5.2.1 and it is stable. Great way of keeping your users
off the bad sites.
I have seen lots of pages on google on how
Check the blackbox out - compiles fast and loads within 5-7 seconds :-)

KDE is indeed an overbloated application. From binaries, it takes 10-15
minutes to install KDE.
It is one of the most common problems with initial setup of the SM.

My prerequisities are:
What software would you recommend for such things ? ( I unsuccesfully
tried Viralator in combination with SquidGuard. )
I'll make an assumption that you speak Russian, so here is a nice write-up:
Check the DJBDNS author's site: http://cr.yp.to/djbdns.html
The instructions are simple. If there is a lot of name resolutions
happening on the web server itself, install dnscache on the localhost.
My advice to you is to avoid BIND. It is too complicated for your needs.

Richard, besides simple you want a _secure_ caching name server. Yes, you
can type named_enable in rc.conf and be done with it, just don't forget
to periodically check the security updates web page for BIND exploits.

If you suspect it is your DNS, just put the IP address of your site in the
browser: 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11 and see if the same thing happens.
But like someone else noticed, it might be page related (java etc) that
the Linux browser is having problems with.
Here is a good example:
Download the source and examine it.

Now, if someone just changes the port in their browser to 3128 (squid

I have the same setup at home for my kids.

Hello. This is first time I write to you, so I beg you pardon if
something goes wrong.
We bought HP Proliant DL 320 G4. I tried to install FreeBSD and all
