5.2 has completely new file system and is know to destroy data and
hang causing you to reboot. Submit problem report about what
happened to you. If you do not want to be exposed to this problem
install 4.9

Subject: hangs up on login prompt (very strange)

Tonight I was reading a webpage, I found the whole X window suddenly
doesn't acceput keyboard input any more (mouse works). So I use
rebooted the computer. That is a Thinkpad T40 running FreeBSD 5.2

After reboot the whole system hangs up at "Login name" prompt (even
"verbose mode"). Ping this box from other computer gets timeouts. I
into single user mode, disabled gdm in single user mode but next
boot I
still hang at "Login name"

I also tried to disable all getty but the box hangs right before
name" prompt. I (in single user mode) turned off every service in
renamed /usr/local/rc.d but nothing changed.

Now I'm backing up all my 40GB data in single user mode through 10MB
it is midnight I hope next morning everything are backed up and I
reinstall FreeBSD and get a working system. But what part do you
think in
my box made it hangs?
