cross-posted because I am desperate...
I am running the following:
ASUS MB P4SDX, P4 2.66 GHz CPU, 512 MB RAM, and a GeForce4 Ti 4800 video
card. This MB has a SiS 900 NIC on-board. I had a Iomega Zip-100
connected, but disconnected during install.
I can install FreeBSD 4.1-RELEASE, but want to upgrade to 4.5+.
When I install 4.5-RELEASE, I can get as far as "Probing Devices, please
When I install 5.0-RELEASE, my system hangs and gives several errors
including "Fatal Trap 9: GPF while in kernel mode" and the more common
"ata0: resetting devices...".
I have tried the recommended fix to address certain CD-ROM drives, "set
hw.ata.ata_dma="1"", but still no good.
Does anyone have any thoughts on what could be causing this and what I need
to do to upgrade?
