I have just had several days of issues with an SB700 chipset and drives
not behaving nicely with it. Try setting the bios to ACHI mode this
worked for me but I was not using the raid as a boot disk I merely
wanted access to all 6 sata ports on the gigabyte board.

Subject: Closure: Help needed w/ HighPoint RocketRAID 3120 on FreeBSD
7.1-RELEASE


In my research and unwitting trials with this particular motherboard
(Gigabyte GA-MA78G-DS3H), I found that, while it is generally well
tolerated
by FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE, the onboard RAID is completely incompatible.
Even
when a RocketRAID 3120 card was used, the RAID could be built, but the
ar0
device thus created, did not survive a reboot.  Also, a software RAID
was
attempted -- after a minimal install from CD, the atacontrol command was
used to create RAID ar0, then (without rebooting) exiting back to the
installer, the OS was loaded onto it; however, upon reboot, ar0 could
not be
found.  In other words, it could not boot from any RAID, whether by
software
in FreeBSD or by hardware on RocketRAID.

The problem stems from the board's Southbridge SB700 chipset (the
infamous
700 series).  This chipset is not (yet?) supported in FreeBSD.

Other notes on this board include the following:
-Generic VGA worked.
-The onboard LAN (chipset 8111C) worked in 7.1-RELEASE, but not 7.0.
-If the SATA ports are put into AHCI or Native IDE modes, individual
disks
were recognized, but in RAID mode, neither the RAID nor individual disks
could be seen.

Why do you think it's nonsense?  It's averaged over a different time
period than the "CPU:" line in the header, so I wouldn't expect it to
match...

The default firefox3 doesn't use the standard browser plugin
location. You have to:

    # cd /usr/local/lib/firefox3/plugins
    # ln -s /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so .

Subject: Sysinstall partition oddities (6.3/i386 -> 7.x/amd64)
To: freebsd-questions@FreeBSD.org
Message-ID: <4977950D.7090900@comcast.net>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed

I've seen some oddities with the partition and bsdlabel editors in the 
sysinstall program on the 7.0 and 7.1 releases.  The partition editor 
seems to be reading or parsing the partition table incorrectly.  I had a 
6.3-RELEASE system with the following layout:
/dev/amrd3s1a on / (ufs, local)
/dev/amrd3s1g on /opt (ufs, local, soft-updates)
/dev/amrd3s1f on /usr (ufs, local, soft-updates)
/dev/amrd3s1d on /var (ufs, local, soft-updates)
/dev/amrd3s1e on /var/log (ufs, local, soft-updates)

Upon booting into the 7.x install media and encountering the FDISK 
Partition Editor, the partition it's seeing is amrd3*a*s1, as opposed to 
amrd3s1.  Trying to continue with the partition table and bsd labels as 
is only led to the installer bailing out.  As soon as it would attempt 
to newfs the disk partitions, the installer would error and report that 
it can't find a device entry in /dev for amrd3*a*s1a.  Since preserving 
the data on the disk was not critical, I was able to continue by 
deleting the original partition/slice and recreating them.  This worked 
fine.

However, I'm still curious as to what the cause of this is.  I have seen 
this before on two other systems while installing 7.x, quite possibly 
while upgrading from 6.3.  When this occurred, I was also moving from 
i386 to amd64;  Is there some kind of offset for partition tables which 
may change based on architecture?

Lastly, here's a screenshot of the partition editor: 
http://people.collaborativefusion.com/~spolyack/fbsd-install.jpg

Unfortunately, I do not have any screenshots of the errors during the 
newfs step.  If this comes up again, I'll be sure to take some.  Thanks.

When I gzip some big files I see that 0% idle, but I can not obtain

I top -S for WCPU and top -S -C for CPU.
In both cases results are *useless*!

Only the first four are recognized as ide, the controller is translating
them as a second and third ide channel but in doing so will ignore the
rest, making any other sata channels pretty much useless. I'm probably
only stating the obvious here, but I think pretty much any platform will
respond like FreeBSD with this scenario.

Some MB's have several different modes of sata for different scenarios,
mine has an auto, combined, ide, sata mode. But then it also has 2
controllers - this mode changes only 4 of the sata ports. Using the sata
mode in your case will give you access to all of the drives (with no
raid mode defined on the controller) and then you can define the raid in
software on FreeBSD with no muss, no fuss. Depends on what you like I
guess.

I'm not sure of the differences between the c and e types of rtl8111,
but the e has third party drivers which can be built on 6.x. As to
whether there are third party drivers for c I'm not sure. Look for
whatever version FreeBSD you have (They may have 7.x drivers now, not
when I last looked about a year ago) and that may get you out of trouble
in the short term- or stick another known NIC in. Then you can keep
track of whatever is going on in regards to the native drivers for your
card.

HTH and good luck!

you need to do some symlinking. it seems like it was removed from

Ok, so here's the correct way to fix this, I'm pretty sure:

1) You install firefox as root.  When you log in as user, there is no
~/.mozilla/plugins; instead of making that folder and symlinking to
swfdec in it, you should symlink:

ln -s /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins ~/.mozilla/plugins

2) You are halfway there.  I submitted a change-request to the
swfdec-plugin port to do this, but until then,

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/swfdec-plugin/libswfdecmozilla.so
/usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/swfdec

No idea how firefox would automatically make the plugin link in your
home folder, so there's no fix for that.  The swfdec source has just
been updated (12/20/2008) and purportedly works with the likes of
youtube, so it seems like a good flash solution for FreeBSD at the
moment.  It worked on the flash site I was trying to visit, and the
adobe flash test page.

Hope this helps some newbie(s) in the future...

Best,
Steve

Hi all,

I have a system which was updated from 6.3-RELEASE to 7.0-RELEASE some eight
months ago
via a source upgrade. After that, I rebuilt all the packages on the system
as well. Now, I would like
to update it again to 7.1-RELEASE, and I'm wondering whether I should do a
clean install or just
do a source upgrade again. My question is regarding all the old cruft that
remains after the upgrade
and rebuilding of all the packages, as I already know that there are a bunch
of old libraries residing
somewhere on the system.

I would like to know if deleting everything in /usr/local/ completely cleans
the system or not (I'm
planning to reinstall all the packages as well), considering that some
6.4-RELEASE base libraries
are still somewhere. Is there anywhere else that I should look?

Thank you both for taking the time to answer!! Finally, the rule in devfs.rules was ok, but the file itself was a little bit messy. I cleaned it up, and it works perfectly now... sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks again!!

	Do you have ports-mgmt/portupgrade(-devel) installed?
	If so, are you aware of "portsclean"?
	This has worked successfully for me for several years.

Hi,

If you have a physical access to the server - reboot in single user mode 
and change the password.
Other option is to login on the console with user toor and no password and 
change it then.

You can change the password by passwd command, which syntax you may find 
in internet or just type man passwd.

Hi!

I'm using FreeBSD 7.0 with IPFW DUMMYNET enabled.

I've got a problem with creating a ruleset which allows me to limit the
overall bandwidth of a link and afterwards pass the packets to another
pipe for processing.

So far I've got those rules:

in_if="em0"
out_if="em1"
management_if="em2"
in_ip="100.100.100.1"
out_ip="200.200.200.1"
management_ip="172.16.0.201"
client1_subnet="192.168.5.0/26"
client2_subnet="192.168.6.0/26"
server_subnet="192.168.7.0/24"

download_bandwidth="6144Kbit/s"
upload_bandwidth="1024Kbit/s"
delay="0"
queue_size="10"

cmd="ipfw"

$cmd add 10 allow all from any to any via lo0

$cmd pipe 100 config mask src-ip 0xffffffff bw $upload_bandwidth queue
$queue_size delay $delay
$cmd pipe 200 config mask dst-ip 0xffffffff bw $download_bandwidth queue
$queue_size

$cmd add pipe 100 all from $client1_subnet to $server_subnet in via $in_if
$cmd add pipe 200 all from $server_subnet to $client1_subnet out via $in_if

$cmd add pipe 100 all from $client2_subnet to $server_subnet in via $in_if
$cmd add pipe 200 all from $server_subnet to $client2_subnet out via $in_if

$cmd add 10000 allow all from any to any via $management_if
$cmd add 20000 allow all from any to any via $in_if
$cmd add 30000 allow all from any to any via $out_if

---

What I want to add now, is the possibility to limit the bandwidth of the
whole link, e.g. 100Mbit/s.

I've tried to add a pipe:

$cmd pipe 50 config bw 100Mbit/s queue $queue_size
$cmd add pipe 50 all from any to any via $in_if


But when I have a look at the pipes with 'ipfw show' I can only see
packets go through the pipe 50 and nothing goes through the other pipes
(which makes sense actually since IPFW work that way?).


Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Sebastian M.

Hi,

 

I am new on Subversion installation.

 

I tried to install Subversion 1.5.5 on a FreeBSD 6.2.

 

I use Port�s system.

 

The installation seems to be ok, but I can�t access to my Subversion with
svn+ssh protocol.

Although I can access to my FreeBSD with ssh (via Putty)

 

When I type : svnadmin �version, I obtain : 

svnadmin, version 1.5.5 (r34862)

    compil� Jan 21 2009, 09:51:35

 

Copyright (C) 2000-2008 CollabNet.

Subversion est un logiciel libre, cf http://subversion.tigris.org/

Il inclut du logiciel d�velopp� par CollabNet (http://www.Collab.Net/).

 

Les types de stockage de d�p�t (FS) suivants sont disponibles :

 

* fs_base : Module destin� � travailler avec un d�p�t Berkeley DB.

* fs_fs : Module de stockage de d�p�t � base de fichiers simples (FSFS).

 

I search for 2 days ! :-(

 

Many thanks for your future help !

 

PS : Sorry for my poor English.

Hi again,

The problem is solved with upgrade to latest 7.1-STABLE, whatever was the
cause. For the archives and people with similar problem, the Xorg.0.log that
contains more about this issue can be found here:

Hi Vince:

Thank you for your kind reply.

Please see my writeup on ASL at http://www.twincling.org/node/277

While i understand ASL, i'm keen to know what are the technical
deviations (if any) in the BSD  licsense followed by FreeBSD project.

eg. if i write a device driver and release it under ASL 2.0, can it
legally make into FreeBSD project ?

-- 
thanks
Saifi.
