Wireless problem with a Conceptronic CH3WNAS, and more
Using the dsmg600 instructions I installed NetBSD 6.0.1 on my box. Now
I have a few problems:
1) The wireless connection dies after a few minutes. No errors in any
logfile or in dmesg, but there is just no traffic anymore. I have found
that the sequence
ifconfig ral0 list scan
brings back the network, for a few minutes. When I omit the ifconfig
line, the box also gets an ip address, but it takes far more time, and
then there is no traffic either.
2) When I shutdown or reboot the box from the commandline, it often
hangs after spawning
syncing disks... 14 3 done
unmounting file systems... done
to the serial port. Surprisingly when I press the power button, it
shuts down, so the box is not just stalled. It seemed to help a bit to
set 'swapoff=NO' in /etc/default/rc.conf
3) Directly after booting there is always a program makemandb running,
which takes lots (30MB?) memory, causing the box to swap heavily.
According to google is a sort of man page indexing service. Why does it
run on each boot? Am I clearing some cache or so.
