I'm regularly encountering a kernel panic on my FreeBSD 9 laptop.
I have not been able to fix the problem by updating my system to the current stable version (which I got from the ctm-svn), so how shall I go forth to find out the reason for this kernel panic and how to get rid of it?
I have the three files
savecore writes to
/var/crash during the boot process, where
info.N contains something like
Dump header from device /dev/ada0p3 Architecture: amd64 Architecture Version: 2 Dump Length: 289755136B (276 MB) Blocksize: 512 Dumptime: Mon Feb 4 08:07:41 2013 Hostname: hostname Magic: FreeBSD Kernel Dump Version String: FreeBSD 9.1-STABLE #4 r246115: Sat Feb 2 14:29:28 GMT 2013 root@:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC Panic String: page fault Dump Parity: 2576771399 Bounds: 3 Dump Status: good
core.txt.N contains more context and
vmcore.N is huge.
