Argh. After all the fixes done on the 5.4-STABLE and 6.0 codebases my
Dell PE1750 still reboots randomly. Again last night at 03.03 :-
( essages still shows nothing, nothing special was going on at the
time (loadavg ~ 0.00).
FreeBSD xyz 6.0-RELEASE-p4 FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE-p4 #0: Sun Feb 19
21:15:01 CET 2006 root at xyz:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SMP i386
What I've tried to fix the problems:
- kern_proc.c patch submitted to freebsd-stable by Don Lewis.
- disable HTT
- upgrade to 5-STABLE
- upgrade to 6.0-RELEASE-p1,2,3,4
What we've _not_ tried:
- Swap memory
This because we have 2850's that experience exactly the same
problems, just less frequently (about once every 4 months).
I'm completely at a loss, and inclined to remove FreeBSD and install
"another OS" as it is an important management machine for us, that
reboots about monthly.
Any clues, tips, help, know bugs?
