Speaking of supermicro, I have a dual xeon 2.8 server stopped right now,
because it keeps segfaulting. I'm using FreeBSD 5.3-STABLE, but this has
always happened since 5.2.1-RELEASE. This server is stopped for some 8
months now..

It will run fine with one CPU (ie can buildworld for days); I've tested
the 4GB RAM with various memory tester programs and it has always come up
fine. When I add the 2nd processor, buildworld will start to randomly
segfault, and the server will eventually lock up completely.

I've also tried single-proc but alternating between the two, to rule out a
screwed up processor. Also tried resetting BIOS to defaults, and HTT is
turned off.

Is this a problem with FreeBSD itself? Anyone has similar problems ?

with FreeBSD because "most users have moved to Fedora Core or Mandrake",
which I find somewhat hard to believe.
