I have had FreeBSD 2.1 installed for a couple of months now but
recently the system panicked and rebooted. After that I got constant
UID:0 signal 11 errors when booting.
The filesystem got messed up and i decided to restore from my backup.
The system is a cyrix 5x86 with 16Mb RAM
AHA 1542 SCSI host adapter
1 Gig fujitsu HD
SCSI CD Rom
2 gig tanberg SCSI tape
Didi 8 port
I booted into single user, fscked thesystem, mounted the filesystems
and restored my backup. The system still constantly came up with
uid:0's signal 11's when going multiuser.
So I tried to re-install the system. Using the same drive parameters
and file system sized 9default0 the system would error when trying to
put down the /bin etc directories. I would get a wrote -1 byte of
10240, and my f4 screen would show more uid:0 signal 11 errors and a
core dump from gzip and cpio.
I tried it without the Digi and NE2000 - same thing
So I reformatted the disk and tried again, same thing.
I changed motherboard and RAM and got the same thing.
I was able to install Linux OK and tried FreeBSD again. It would
install only if I changed the file system sizes from the default.
Once installed I tried to relink the kernel to get my digi ports back
and got errors compiling the kernel.
I guess my next move is to replace the SCSI controller and/or disk???
Can anyone shed any light onto what the problem might be?
Also what do the UID:0 signal 11 errors mean?
I have done a search through the freebsd.org archives but not found
