Old releases?



  • Testing the latest 1.2RC4 on a D201GLY2 Intel board it do not wont work (kernel panic after loading the sis lan driver) so i want to try some older releases.
    I have also 1.2b1 iso, it works.
    Where i can find other releases (older then RC4) to do some test on?



  • I have the exact same problem with the board, Intel Little Valley BLKD201GLY2. Just like the original poster, the 1.2 BETA 1 boots fine, while RC 4 stops booting at the integrated SiS LAN adapter, saying:

    sis0: couldn't map interrupt

    It boots fine if I disable the adapter in the BIOS.

    Iax: did you try any other pfSense versions? If so, which ones do work? Did you try any newer snapshots? Did you come up with a solution?

    Does anyone else know of a solution? (Other than sticking inside a Dual LAN PCI card, which in this case seems a bit silly to me… ::))



  • Are you using the UP or the MP kernel? There were changes after rc2 that caused some machines with MP capable interrupt controllers to barf on the UP kernel. This happened to me, and everything worked fine after loading the multiprocessor kernel.



  • @Strawin:

    sis0: couldn't map interrupt

    Same problem.

    Iax: did you try any other pfSense versions?

    RC3, don't work, same problems you found.

    sticking inside a Dual LAN PCI card

    I need tree ports so i used a D-Link DFE-508TX (quite expensive) and RC1, works fine.



  • @dotdash:

    Are you using the UP or the MP kernel?

    There is a way to choose which kernel boots?
    Thanks!



  • on my PC I change kernels, for some reason it choose MP when its a single, something is still wrong. RC2 worked great on the same hardware.



  • Iax:
    There is a choice of which kernel in the installation.

    OldGuru:
    From my limited understanding, some of the files removed from the post rc2 up kernel affected the APIC, which may be used on a mp capable machine, even if it's using a single/single-core processor. In my case, the box ran the stock FreeBSD kernel and the RC2 up kernel, but using the RC3 up kernel resulted in none of the ethernet interfaces working. Switching to the SMP kernel made everything work again.

    ty for your help, but Id just like to get my RC2 back, I did an upgrade and I dont see where to select a kernel.Doing an upgrade shouldn't create a problem like this, anyway TY
