I tried booting the 64bit GhostBSD 3.5 DVD on my MacBook 4.1 (2008 model with 2.4ghz C2D and intel X3100 graphics). The system panicked partway through the boot process with the following error message:
Code: Select all
ACPI APIC Table: <APPLE Apple00>
panic: AP #1 (PHY# 1) failed!
cpuid = 0
KDB: stack backtrace:
#0 0xffffffff8094f7f6 at kdb_backtrace+0x66
#1 0xffffffff8091850e at panic+0x1ce
#2 0xffffffff80c07a19 at cpu_mp_start +0x579

#4 0xffffffff808c8df7 at mi_startup+0x77
#5 0xffffffff802b6bac at btext +0x2c
Does anyone have a workaround for this issue that doesn't involve disabling smp?
Hello, installing on a Mac is always hard, Macs were made to use Mac software but I´ve seen some Macs running FreeBSD.
FreeBSD makes extensive use of the system ACPI service on the i386, amd64, and ia64 platforms to aid in system configuration if it is detected during boot. Unfortunately, some bugs still exist in the ACPI driver and various system motherboards. The use of ACPI can be disabled by setting hint.acpi.0.disabled in the third stage boot loader:
This is reset each time the system is booted, so it is necessary to add
to "/boot/loader.conf" to make this change permanent.
