Can't boot with Epia EK800EG



  • I see from searching that the Epia EK800 has been used before. I can boot m0n0wall fine and I can boot the memstick version of pfsense but I cannot boot the 512 version.
    I get a Fatal trap 18: integer divide fault while in kernel mode.
    Then it says cannot dump. Device not defined or unavailable.
    This is with the vga 512 version, with the plain 512 version it never gets past the Verifying DMI pool.
    I only have 256M RAM, could this be the reason??



  • Is this the right forum?? No one has any idea what this issue is?

    I doubt it. I have a Jetway motherboard with VIA CPU and 256MB RAM and it runs pfSense "Full" version just fine.

    @Jarhead:

    So why are you trying to boot the "512" version?

    @Jarhead:

    FreeBSD writes crash dumps to swap file. If the kernel crashes before there is a swap file established (e.g. early in the startup if you are running the "full" version or anytime if you are running the nano BSD version) then the kernel has nowhere to write the crash dump.

    @Jarhead:

    This is with the vga 512 version, with the plain 512 version it never gets past the Verifying DMI pool.

    Its a while since I watched a pfSense startup and "Verifying DMI pool" doesn't appear in the recorded startup output of my system (output of dmesg pfSense shell command). "Verifying DMI data" is BIOS output?
