2.0 Install - License + Error message



  • A few questions:

    First is an "error 11" which is memory size. I'm not sure if this is an issue or not - or what causes this, etc. (this is why I recently asked about memory limitations of pfsense, etc.). Is there a way I can fix this? Seems as though no matter what RAM config I use this error comes up - is this just an error related to actual/physical memory vs. available memory?

    From bootup log:
    RTC BIOS diagnostic error 11 <memory_size>Second this isn't an error but is there any way to change the time counters down to 0.001 msec? Or anything faster than 1.000 msec? Even if this results in crazy CPU usage or needs large amounts of memory, etc. I'm willing to accept that tradeoff so that I could use it for testing purposes either on a dedicated test box or to change lower than 1msec for testing then back to 1msec for normal operations.

    From bootup log:
    Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec

    Third is the license issue below. I've never changed the config files - how does one go about doing this? Is this just an acknowledgement of Intel's open-source license, etc. that pfsense uses? Should I worry about this? There is an error message in there - I assume this is because I haven't agreed with the license.

    @pf2.0nyc:

    First is an "error 11" which is memory size. I'm not sure if this is an issue or not - or what causes this, etc. (this is why I recently asked about memory limitations of pfsense, etc.). Is there a way I can fix this? Seems as though no matter what RAM config I use this error comes up - is this just an error related to actual/physical memory vs. available memory?

    From bootup log:
    RTC BIOS diagnostic error 11

    That'd be from your BIOS… probably safe to ignore, but if you can find a BIOS update, it wouldn't hurt to run it.

    @pf2.0nyc:

    Second this isn't an error but is there any way to change the time counters down to 0.001 msec? Or anything faster than 1.000 msec? Even if this results in crazy CPU usage or needs large amounts of memory, etc. I'm willing to accept that tradeoff so that I could use it for testing purposes either on a dedicated test box or to change lower than 1msec for testing then back to 1msec for normal operations.

    From bootup log:
    Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec

    Might be able to tinker with kern.hz

    @pf2.0nyc:

    Third is the license issue below. I've never changed the config files - how does one go about doing this? Is this just an acknowledgement of Intel's open-source license, etc. that pfsense uses? Should I worry about this? There is an error message in there - I assume this is because I haven't agreed with the license.

    Unless you have an Intel wireless card, those are safe to ignore.



  • Might be able to tinker with kern.hz

    I assume this means that I'm going to have to learn how to play with/manipulate config files?

    Unless you have an Intel wireless card, those are safe to ignore.

    The wireless card is a Cisco AIR-PI21AG-A-K9 Cisco 802.11G PCI Wireless Adapter 2.4 - I don't know if that uses an Intel chipset but I haven't had any issues - should I ignore this error?

    Thx Jim for the reply.

    Search the doc wiki and forum, several places mention how to adjust kern.hz



  • Also, i'm on the latest BIOS update for that mobo and the RAM is totally fine (Dell RAM, Dell mobo, Dell latest BIOS). I don't get errors when I boot any other OS on that system???

    I'm wondering if I should be worried about a possible failure coming up on one of the memory slots (since swapping out the memory produced same result) - or if possible there is something else wrong.

    or should I just ignore?
