Strange bugs on embedded only?

  • Hello, I'm facing (once again) multiple bugs on embedded:

    1- the root file system is mounted in read/write instead of ro…
    2- /etc/rc.conf_mount_ro & /etc/rc.conf_mount_rw scripts are not working...
    3- /etc/fstab gets ignored if you add to it another drive... so I have to edit /etc/rc manually to force mounting additional drives on boot...
    4- Atheros 5413 using ath driver keeps giving "(stuck beacon; resetting (bmiss count 4)" before it eventually dies...
    5- and if you add virtual access points you get:

    Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
    cpuid = 0; apic id = 00
    fault virtual address   = 0xc36dc008
    fault code              = supervisor read, page not present
    instruction pointer     = 0x20:0xc09ff7ab
    stack pointer           = 0x28:0xe2da0bf4
    frame pointer           = 0x28:0xe2da0c10
    code segment            = base 0x0, limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b
                           = DPL 0, pres 1, def32 1, gran 1
    processor eflags        = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL = 0
    current process         = 0 (ath0 taskq)
    trap number             = 12
    panic: page fault
    cpuid = 0
    Uptime: 6m29s
    Cannot dump. Device not defined or unavailable.
    Automatic reboot in 15 seconds - press a key on the console to abort

    6- layer7 traffic shaping doesn't work.(this seems to be an issue on all versions)


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    1. Known issue with an open ticket
    2. Same as 1
    3. Somewhat of a known issue, it's not a supported change so it's not expected to work. Search the forum, others have posted howtos on that.
    4. Driver issue, nothing we can do
    5. Same as 4, not all chips support VAPs. Probably a chip limitation.
    6. There are open tickets for that as well.

    Please search the forum and for issues before posting in the future.

  • Thanks for the reply, jimp. the same exact wifi card works fine with multiple Virtual AP's on beta5, and I don't get the "Stuck Beacon" errors either… it was working fine on some beta4 releases too  ???

  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    There were no changes to the ath driver between BETA5 and RC1 images.

  • for some reason the wifi card works now… I'm connected to 3 VAP's simultaneously and I'm not getting a single reset/panic...

    What I did this time is save the interfaces config between each interface I add...

  • Could you post some more details on your steps to reproduce the panic and to not panic?
