I downloaded the following image, hence it has KDB built in:
I've tried with and without SMP and it is the same.
If I disable ACPI, then I get a "trap 9: general protection fault while in
kernel mode" just after that "nve0" has been initialized.
Instruction pointer: 0x70:0xffff
stack pointer: 0x28:0xfd0
frame pointer: 0x28:0xf65
current process = 0 (swapper)
When I type in "show intrcnt" in the debugger everything looks ok to me. No
extremely high interrupt counts.
What I can add to the description of this laptop is that it has Windows XP
installed on the HDD. And not long ago it didn't want to boot anymore, so I
had to do a "destructive system recovery". I've also noticed that if I don't
use the "ESC" key during boot, to get the boot-selection menu, but just let
the system auto-boot, many times the FreeBSD 7.0 ISO CD will fail with a
corrupt symbol table, when it is loading the kernel. I don't believe it. Can
it be that something resistant has attached to some interrupt vectors? Is
there an easy way I can find out what is using up all the CPU from the
debugger. I tried "ps", but it doesn't show the CPU usage per thread.
