RE: What is actual status of SUJ in 9-STABLE?

2012-03-29 Thread Dewayne Geraghty
Use of SU+J use with snapshots is being addressed. Latest update (to 9.0 Stable) was today, please refer to http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/svn-src-stable-9/2012-March/001406.html If you mean to use it in production (ie with snapshots), then it is not advisable. Regards, Dewayne.

Hi Matheus, You have two options. Option 1. Resync the in-memory and on-disk view of the world Identify the device from # usbconfig list Then power it off and then power on. If this doesn't work then you'll need to dd the device. For example: # usbconfig list ugen4.2: DT Mini Slim Kingston at

Hi Mikolaj, As part of the process, I delete all logs, audit trails of the build, /usr/obj/* and the various DESTDIR's that have been set. The build process is from a single /usr/src but I do modify MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX, DESTDIR and various WITHOUT_ statements through variable switches in

RE: AHCI timeouts - 8.1-PRERELEASE

2010-06-06 Thread Dewayne Geraghty
Quick update. Following extensive testing, I've recommended to Alexander, in a longer email, that the default for VIA's VT8251 AHCI Controller be set at AHCI_Q_NOPMP|AHCI_Q_NONCQ Use of ahci in the kernel without this option will result in timeouts, ultimately preventing the machine from

The make distribution phase of a full build of 7.1 Prerelease, sourced today (Mon Dec 1 10:34:45 UTC 2008), unfortunately failed. make distribution DESTDIR=/differentplace failed (see below), however the following worked ok: buildkernel, installkernerl, buildworld, installworld. Two systems

My earlier post falls into the embarrassing, wish that I hadn't category. To prevent anyone wasting effort, I'm replying. make distribution DESTDIR=/newplace requires a make world DESTDIR=/newplace as a prerequisite. The earlier post, caused me to believe that there was an error in

Re: machine hangs on occasion - correlated with ssh break-in attempts

2008-08-21 Thread Dewayne Geraghty
There are many excellent suggestions on how to deal with invalid/unauthorised access attempts via ssh.  I'd used sshguard for around 8 months but recently changed to bruteblock, both are in the ports/security.  sshguard was very easy to configure, via rc.conf arguments.    Bruteblock handled

My apologies for the confusion, yes, the C7 only helps with AES. The configuration detail is: between branch offices I use FreeBSD ipsec (AES), and within the branches Windows boxes access the firewall boxes. The firewalls run samba inside a jail. Due to sensitive information (see your local

We're looking to deploy FreeBSD on our main firewall. The firewall config is a VIA C7 (padlock), racoon(ipsec-tools-0.7), IPSec. We're testing racoon with a windows box, however the firewall doesn't function correctly when net.inet.ipsec.crypto_support=1 is set. With a

Re an earlier em thread, HTTP and SMP April 2004, I decided to test my out-of-the-box P4 (2.8E) HT threading enabled with SATA HD. Test was to build identical kernels using FreeBSD 4.10 taking note of the compile times. Then reboot with: SMP, APIC_IO in kernel, and machdep.hlt_logical_cpus: 0.
