DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2009-09
A little installing experience
I got a shiny new HP server to test and it might happen that I can't get
all issues with DragonFly on it solved before I'll loose it for testing,
therefore will document problems found so far.
* Network doesn't work. The bce(4) driver in our tree needs and update to
get support for 5709 devices.
* PS2 keyboard doesn't work at all in DragonFly, the USB one works only
sometimes. There is two issues. At first PS2 isn't actually a real PS2,
but emulated one. This commit in OpenBSD is relevant probably:
The second issue is that there is always at least one USB keyboard and
mouse in the system - virtual ones from ILO management console.
Therefore there are problems choosing between these and real ones. We
need keyboard muxing to solve this issue.
* The system doesn't boot from ciss(4) raid volume. Mounting root is
attempted before volume (da0) is really detected. It's a devfs issue,
pre-devfs system boots fine.
* System behaves well when installing, but after booting into installed
system from raid volume (pre-devfs system) there are constant intr 11
livelock messages in the console and the system is under 50% interrupt
load. This is gone if I disconnect SATA DVD (not ahci(4)) device. Why it
isn't the while installing?
There might be more of course, help is welcome ;).
