Panic mutex



  • I am trying to install the developers ISO (dated 07 December 2006) but keep getting 'panic's.

    The console shows "stopping …..dev_bootstrap.sh" for several hours (there is downloading going on and ps shows that cvsup is running). Then I get this panic. I have restarted the PC a few times but get different panics. I did lose power at one time so that might have messed something up.

    I am reinstalling now, but any ideas as to why this might be happening? My cpu is a Via C3. Do I need something more powerful?



  • Its been 3 days of running the dev_bootstrap.sh …. cvsup does a lot of downloading and then I get some panic and "kdb> " on the console.
    Is it ok to just restart the PC?  because that seems to restart the process but I dont know if I am making any progress.

    Any tips for a dev newbie? I have had power interruptions and isp messing up quite a lot so that is disrupting the process.

    The cpu is a VIA C3, 900MHz, 256 MB Ram, 40 GB hard disk.
    the iso I m trying right now is developers/pfSense.iso  dated   12-Jan-2007 10:53
    Previously I tried using older verions of this iso.

    Would it be better for me to use pfSense-Developers-1.0-LiveCD-Installer.iso.gz ?
