I have had several spontaneous reboots with the 6.0 release installed
off of the iso CD. I am wondering if I should upgrade to stable?
I have had problems with this laptop in Linux where it would not get
through the ACPI part of the boot process. I would have to reboot it
several times before it would go all the way through.
After I first installed FreeBSD, I thought I might be having some
problem with Mozilla as it tends to create zombie processes. Firefox
starts to eat up 100% cpu on the first WWW page visited. But then it
could be an Xorg or Enlightenment problem as well.
I wonder if anyone else uses this type laptop, and if they have had
problems? Maybe before upgrading to stable I should try disabling ACPI
and/or hyperthreading and see what happens. But I don't like waiting
for problems to happen if someone else has found the solution already.
Thanks a lot,
