Panic mutex

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

    The console shows "stopping …" 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 …. 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 ?
