xosview is partly broken since CURRENT-5. if i remember right, since the
newbus code was introduced (about a year ago or longer). However you can run
it with the interruptmeter disabled. To disable the Interruptmeter use the
command 'xosview -int -intrate'.
If you want to repair it, I would point you to the sources in
src/usr.bin/vmstat.c and src/usr.bin/systat/*. It's shown there how to
handle the interrupt counters in RELENG_5.
The diskmeter is broken too.
Since xosview is partly broken, I started to use sysutils/gkrellm2. It doesn't
display the interrupt counters, but it does some more things things that
xosview can't do. It's easy configurable and can even run in C/S mode. So if
you like graphic system monitoring tools, I would give it a try.
