This is a really strange problem that even I don't believe;)
I have 7.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT #22: Fri Sep 23 05:39:20 CDT 2005
And when I start skype I get a hard lock. No console message, no log
Work arounds that are independient of one another:
Kernel compiled prior to around Sept. 9 works fine zero problems with kde.
Current Kernel and using xdm in place of kde, works fine with current kernel.
Now I keep my box clean of old libraries and have done a portupgrade
-Rruf of skype and am now doing one of kde with no changes and even
that certainly doesn't explain why an older kernel would work unless I
had some old libraries around, I would assume and the working kernels
aren't that old.
To make it even more unusual I have 4 other machines showing the same
symptoms. They are all AMD 32 bit w/ different motherboards and from
256M to 2M in memory. I don't have anything with an intel chip to test
on. We are low budget here :D
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, I have no idea where else
P.S. Should I post a copy of this to current? I haven't because
I don't like multiple list posting.
