Hi, you are right - there was indeed the following messages:
kernel: ad0: FAILURE - READ_DMA status=51<READY,DSC,ERROR>
And this message appeared starting from the date I ran CFS, an
encrypted filesystem. It's a half year old WesternDigital250GB disk.
I now disabled dma (was UDMA100 actually) by adding "hw.ata.ata_dma=0"
to /boot/loader.conf .
Before I saw your reply, I just manually created those old-index etc
by following upgrade.sh, and ran the rest of the upgrade.sh from the
"Removing schg flag from existing files..." part. After that I have
ran portupgrade, portsnap etc, and so far don't see problem. Do I
still need to go back to 6.0 and run upgrade.sh?
