Due to yesterday error on 4.9-RELEASE of FreeBSD.
hard error reading fsbn
ad0: DMA problem fallback to PIO mode
libfreetype.a: Bad address
i tried changing some kernel paramaters
mainly these two
However, that didn't change anything.
I also recompiled the GENERIC kernel (as is - on first
installation) and that produced the same error, when
trying to install XFree86-4.
So I revereted back to 4.8-RELEASE of FreeBSD. Lo and
Behold everything worked fine. No errors nothing.
So I again installed 4.9-RELEASE on my laptop and what
do I find?
Yes thats right, dmesg out of the same sort of error
"hard error reading fsbn
ad0: DMA problem fallback to PIO mode"
I think my laptop doesn't like 4.9-RELEASE.
Has anyone experienced something like this before?
My laptop is a Dell Latitude (H model i think).
I dont really know how to troubleshoot/fix this.
If anyone has any ideas/suggestions, on how to go
about this id greatly appreciate it.
Im not sure, if it maybe a BIOS thing or a kernel
thanks for that.
I know it works with 4.8.
but ill try re-installing it again and see how i go.
Ill post again later if i still have the same
