[Solved] pfsense 2.4.0-BETA 20170328 broken for ix 10GigE controller?



  • Ya, something blew. I went to update my pfSense box to the latest and blew it up. I then went to reinstall using the image of the same date and it crashed as well.

    Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ufs/FreeBSD_Install [ro,noatime]...

    Any ideas? It seems to crash at the ix 10GigE controller. Never had this issue before.



  • Can confirm last stable build I am on is:

    2.4.0.b.20170324.1038



  • Same issue here.  Supermicro X10SDV-2C-TP8F with Pentium (Xeon) D-1508 and onboard X552/557 10G.  Was ok using pfSense-CE-2.4.0-BETA-amd64-20170317-0612 but an update to the most current version as of this moment will no longer boot and it hangs on fresh install with the latest snapshot as in this thread.



  • Hmm… I did not found any changes related to ixgbe driver or any other in last days, but it can be just not announced.



  • Also same issue. Updated from …20170321... to latest. Supermicro 5018D-FN4T Xeon D-1541 Dual 10GbE.

    Apparently the driver is unstable with the options enabled that allow ALTQ to work. So they had to be disabled again. New build will be ready shortly with the drivers back to how they were originally (stable, but no ALTQ)



  • Build …-20170331-... resolves the issue. Thanks  :)



  • @jimp:

    Yep, the new build did the trick.
