Well, I took some advice and did an ftp install of the beta netbsd-4
amd64 asus A8N-SLI Premium system
This is using todays 200706210002Z build.
The CD still does not work (actually a dvd-R drive)
The error report is:
cd0(viaide0:1:0): Check Condition on CDB: 0xd28 00 00 00 00 1a 00 00
SENSE KEY: Hardware Error
ASC/ASCQ: Logical Unit Communication CRC Error
mount_cd9660: /dev/cd0a on /mnt: Input/output error
I also tried the multiprocessor kernel on this machine (as it has an
and the system crashed and rebooted before the kernel came up. I do
not have a
serial port setup at this time so don't have the point where it died
I tried to build the source tree using a download from the 17th and
it goes really
slow and finally seems to wedge trying to build part of gcc. The
system has bad
responsivity which makes it look like some type of interrupt problem.
systat vm shows only system time, and no user time doing the build.
just a small
amount of interrupt time shows up.
If there are any particular tests that can be done to locate what is
this system, drop me a line with instructions and I will do my best
I am assuming that the amd64 port works well on other platforms.
BTW, this board has a bios that won't let you turn off acpi, so if
that is a recommendation
I don't think any progress will be made unless you know some magic
incantation that I
haven't been able to find.
