DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2004-07
Re: SMP support via ACPI
:> :Just curious here. As of about two, maybe three weeks ago, I was able
:> :to boot DragonFly on my P4 HT machine with an SMP kernel. I just
:> :did a fresh install of DragonFly BSD 1.0A and now can not boot an
:> :SMP kernel. Was there a "simple" change that caused this that could
:> :perhaps be reverted or was it a major sub-system import that will
:> :require much more work?
:> Try booting without ACPI (boot menu option 2).
:I tried that but got the same result, the system will freeze up at
:various stages of the boot process (with an SMP kernel).
Maybe it's the dual boot stuff. Again.
Try creating the file /boot.config with the contents '-V' (without
the quotes), so it doesn't try to use the serial console.
