No, gzero is used with geom_zero and you should not use it directly.

Huh ? I know this ? But why would one use gzero and not /dev/zero ?

default dns config change causing major poolpah

the undiscussed and unannounced change to the default dns config to
cause local transfer of the root and arpa zone files has raised major
discussing in the dns operational community. (see the mailing list
dns-operations <at> mail.oarc.isc.org).

i have spent some hours turning off the default bind and going custom on
a dozen or so machines around the planet.  i am not happy.

what am i missing here?

weird problem with a fresh current on amd64

Hi.

I wonder why so many changes in code freeze?

Before the freeze (and 2-3  weeks ago) my amd64 current box worked like 
charm. But after I've refresh it couple days ago I've got a strange 
problem. It hangs on boot when rc.d scripts loaded.

I’ve rebuild a kernel to add KDB. Now I can get in it when the box hang. 
But what’s a magic? When I press Ctrl-Alt-Esc I see a login prompt and 
get to debugger. When I return back the box still not respond. It looks 
like something with console?

I should reboot 2-3 times to boot smooth.

The last lines on console is:
Starting devd.
/etc/rc: DEBUG: run_rc_command: doit: /sbin/devd
/etc/pccard_ether: DEBUG: run_rccommand: start_precmd: checkauto
/etc/pccard_ether: DEBUG: run_rccommand: doit: pccard_ether_start
/etc/pccard_ether: DEBUG: run_rccommand: start_precmd: checkauto
/etc/pccard_ether: DEBUG: run_rccommand: doit: pccard_ether_start
nve0: linkstate changed to DOWN

/dev/gzero is a GEOM provider, and /dev/zero is not. This means you could attach
other GEOM classes to it.

But to just get zeroes, using /dev/zero is all you need :)

 /dev/zero  has infinite length. but /dev/gzero has *just* 1 EB length, it is
far more shorter.

PS/2 mouse stops working when used with keyboard

hi

I have nvidia nforce430 chipset and mouse and keyboard plugged in via PS/2.
The mouse stops working when I use it while pressing any key on the keyboard. 
ie. I press space for example and start moving the mouse, it works for 2-3 seconds
then the mouse stops responding.. moused is in "select" state so I guess the problem
is in kernel. 

/etc/rc.d/moused restart wakes it up.

The system is -current as of today on SMP. I dont know if this ever worked.
interrupts are like this:

interrupt                          total       rate
irq1: atkbd0                        4105          2
irq12: psm0                         8880          6

the system uses apic and acpi. Giant is set to adaptive (both psm and atbkd is locked by Giant).
if you needed some more information just ask

thnx for help

roman
