Dear All; 

I have the same problem with running Fxtv unser
I have already raised a PR (kern/67769). Plaese Read
the above PR for further information. 

I am using an Abit Motherboard BE6II, with Intel
R440BX chipset (82443BX and 82371EB). I use an AGP
graphic card with an NVIDIA TNT2 chip set, and PCI
Hauppauge WinTV Primio FM TV card.

I have been running Fxtv application under FreeBsd4.5
on the above configuration without any problem.

I installed FreeBsd4.10 on the same above
configuration and noticed the Desktop (KDE) Freezes.

I then used the following FreeBsd Releases on the same
above configuration and noticed the problem still
exist. I.e.(KDE Desktop Freezes).
FreeBSD4.9, (did not install FreeBsd 4.9, but I
bleive the problem exists)

Therefore this is not a hardware problem, Since the
hardware remained the same at all time. This problem
introduced in FreeBsd 4.6.

I have noticed that there were lots of changes
introduced in FreeBsd4.6.

For example the entire DMA access and transfer
routines are redesigned and rewritten.

I believe there is a problem with DMA transfer to
Graphic card.

I also noticed that FreeBSD4.5 was using XFree86
version (3.3.6) and FreeBsd4.6 to FreeBsd4.10 using
XFree86 version (4.x.X)

If you have any suggestion about the above problem, I
would be grateful to hear from you.

Please contact me if you have any question.

Kind Regards
