Has anyone successfully tried installing and running FreeBSD on
Intel's newest 6-CORE Dunnington?
I was able to install 200809-CURRENT on it but after recompiling
the kernel (taking out WITNESS, INVARIANTS KGDB et al) I found out
that I could not boot it anymore. What's weird is that I could not
boot the same 200809-CURRENT CD that I used the first time. Just hangs
I've also tried installing via PXE and it always hangs on the above
spot, even using a -CURRENT from Sept 26 and PXE-booting it. No go :-(
Firstly, does it seem to be detecting all six CPUs correctly? Are you
able to reboot with the old kernel and put a verbose dmesg and the
output of "acpidump -dt" up on the web somewhere? It would also be
interesting to know if anything else is printed after the above when it
hangs on a verbose boot.
I can't be sure that it detects the 6 cores. I did get a dmesg prior
to rebuilding the world on it but I didnt get it off the box as I was
working on rebuilding the world. I tried rebooting w/ the old kernel
as well as, like I said, the 200809-CURRENT CD but it just hangs.
btw, this is a 4-CPU 6-core (4 Physical CPUs, 6 Cores each)
There was a report back in July about FreeBSD not discovering all the
CPUs on the board, but there was no mention of hanging on boot.
Yes. I read that thread. The OP said he had a chance to test the
6-core for a few hours. This box is in my hands for quite an
indefinite amount of time ;-)
