Hi, I was reading your post in regards to installing FreeBSD on the
BladeCenter that you made to freebsd-stable. I've also been trying
installing FreeBSD on the BladeCenter. During my installs, it hangs
during the SCSI disk probes (Waiting for SCSI disks to settle). That
should only take 5 seconds, but it sits there for a long time. I have
1. Disabling acpi. What happens for you if acpi is not disabled? I
never tried this, and I'm not sure if this fixes anything or not. What
did it do for you?
2. Keyboard. Have you tried BETA4? I think the new kbdmux stuff will
mean that the keyboard does not need to be disabled.
3. ispfw. I tried both with and without the firmware. I didn't make
any difference. It would still hang. What kind of storage are you
installing onto? I'm working with an IBM DS400 (aka T600).
