Hi all,
=20
first of all, I=B4m sorry maybe for my bad English.
=20
We have 2 routers which I maintain in our mesh wireless community =
network.
=20
The Router 1 has 2 atheros adapters, ath0=3Dwistron cm9, ath1=3Dwistron =
cm10, of
course some sisX, fxpX and so on.
The Router 2 has 1 atheros adapter, ath0=3Dwistron CM10.
=20
My R1 panics and even more it freezes very often. Maybe the reason for
panicing and freezing is the same and maybe not.
=20
This is not important now, this story is about R2.
=20
I started to use "option SW_WATCHDOG" in both my custom kernels on the =
R1
and R2 recently in hope, it is some walkaround for freezing at least if =
not
for panicing.
=20
In the /etc/defaults/rc.conf there are not "watchdogd_flags=3D""" =
option, but
I tried to wrote it to my /etc/rc.conf in this way:
=20
watchdogd_enable=3D"YES"
watchdogd_flags=3D"-e ping 10.40.0.72 -s 2 -t 1"
=20
I saved my rc.conf without any doubt.
=20
I did so, because I wanted to instruct watchdogd to execute my command,
common pinging some IP address. I was not satisfied with a trivial file
system check instead.
=20
After saving the rc.conf file, I restarted watchdogd deamon at once.
=20
... and ... 2 seconds ... my ssh client was disconnected ... unexpected =
end
of ssh session. :)
=20
Okay, maybe something wrong, maybe I did a mistake and it panicked.
=20
I was waitting for 3 minutes, but R2 did not react at all.
=20
So I went to R2 and I powered off and powered on ... but still it was =
the
same.
=20
After I attached monitor and keyboard, I saw that ifconfig did not =
configure
any interfaces. Why ?
=20
Answear: Because rc.conf had 0 Bytes !!!
=20
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel      6174 Sep  1 XX:XX rc.conf , I do not =
remember
time of last modification of file.
=20
So the content of rc.conf was completly gone !!!
=20
Is it possible at all ?
=20
Now I am scared that any modification rc.conf will be mean loss of =
content.
=20
I have kernel dump and backtrace of panic.
=20
It is in the attachment.
=20
=20
If I could help with this, I will do it.
=20
And please explain me somebody, how I lost the content of rc.conf file. =
:-O
Thank you.
=20
Daniel

P.S.: I am not currently subscribed in the freebsd-stable mailling list, =
so
use my e-mail address. I am ok with freebsd-current mailling list.
