• I just configured my new SG-1000 and am experiencing repeated kernel panics. As suggested in the forum, I downloaded a new image and re-installed it. Afterward, again as suggested, I entered single user mode and fsck'd my heart out. No joy. Still panics so frequent as to be unusable.

    Help, please, Netgate. This is most definitely not a wonderful customer experience.

    Btw, the type of panic varies. Here's the most recent:

    Fatal kernel mode data abort: ‘Translation Fault (L1)’ on read

  • @ivor, I just have pfSense Gold for Community Support, which I don't think allows me to open a ticket. Am I wrong?

    You purchased an appliance from us, of course you can contact our support.

    pfSense Gold and community support are two separate parts:

    • pfSense Gold - access to HTML version of pfSense book, pfSense Hangouts (videos) etc. However, pfSense Gold is now free to all. See this blog post.

    • Community support - that's this forum, where together with our community we can help out with software issues you may have. However, in case we notice a customer with a technical issue our support can handle faster and better, we usually just point customers directly to our support.

    I hope this clears it up. So please contact our support and reference this thread. They will be able to assist. Thanks!
