BSD Randomly Halts on Boot

Post by frogprince » Tue Sep 05, 2017 11:21 am

My BSD machine has removable hard drives, and I run both 10.3 and 11.1 on the same machine. With a fully updated 11.1, the boot process randomly halts at:

Code: Select all

cd0 at ata5 bus 0 scbus 5 target 0 lun 0
I don't see this behavior with 10.3 on the same machine. Has anyone else seen this behavior? Should I take this issue to the FreeBSD forum?

Yes. That's still fairly early in the boot process while the kernel detects the hardware. GhostBSD runs a unmodified FreeBSD kernel and thus you should hit exactly the same behavior if you try it out with a mainline FreeBSD 11.1. If you do (what I absolutely would expect) it's something that needs to be resolved in upstream FreeBSD since we're only consuming it as the base for our distribution. But thanks for reporting! Things like that should be figured out and fixed.

Hate when things show out some randomness :evil:
Computers are supposed to strictly follow what they are instructed to do, not behave randomly. :mrgreen:
