doug white pointed out that my cpu string being garbaged was interesting, i noticed it but i didn't think it was a big deal.
Timecounter "i8254" frequency 1193182 Hz quality 0
CPU: \M-5\M^@f\M-A\M-a\^P\M-~\M-C\M-h\M-7\M^?fY\M-1\^Z\M^J\M-C\M-~\M-H\M-h\M-<I\M-h)Hr\M-)\M^@\M-e\M-x\M^@\M-E\^Hs\M-!\M-C\M-h% (1833.14-MHz 686-class CPU)
Origin = "AuthenticAMD" Id = 0x6a0 Stepping = 0
anyway as far as i can tell it's always been this way ever since 5.1 - i never ran stable on this box so i'm not sure if it's current problem or both current and stable or just my hardware - now i'm running an install world of 5.2.1 from around
so if anyone's interested i'd be willing to try stable on it and let you guys know how it goes - or if anyone knows any fixes for it or has come across it before i'd appreciate any help
i tried the aimgroups mailing list archive and couldn't get much about this type of problem
