Kernel panic: vm_fault

Hi, .*:

I’m not entirely sure if this belongs here or in freebsd-bugs, but since I haven’t found a bug myself, I
chose to send it here first. Please let me know if I’m in the wrong place.

I just experienced a kernel panic/reboot and I’m not sure what’s happening. /var/log/messages only provides:

Best console hardware monitor pkg?

What's the general opinion these days on the "best" utility for 
monitoring all the temperature probes, fan speeds, and other readouts 
from a motherboard? (One that doesn't need X and can be installed 
through pkg).

useful advice...

A useful piece of advice I picked up from an early 90's book about the
Internet: "Never fire a loaded mailer."

There've been times when I've written irritated or angry emails. But
stopping, stepping away from the computer, and coming back later when I'm
feeling better is almost always a better idea.

slightly off topic: SMART error values for seagate drives

Is anyone familiar with exactly how the raw_read_error_rate, 
reallocated_sector_count, seek_error_rate, hardware_crc_recovered, and 
udma_crc_error_count values work for seagate drives?

AFAIK at least some of these fields list the (average?) number of 
sectors between errors, and thus a higher raw value is better ...I 
think. I have several apparently healthy seagate drives with very high 
rrer/ser/her raw values that seem to support this.

I recently took an older disk out of storage, and as part of my system 
building procedure I always run a few tests over it before putting it 
back into service. Initially it also had high rrer/ser/her raw values. 
It failed a SMART extended test at about 40% remaining with a read 
failure, and the udma_crc_error_count jumped from 0 to 5. I know 
sometimes this can be just transient flakiness, so I just zeroed out the 
entire drive with dd to exercise all the sectors and force any 
remappings. Now, the reallocated_sector_count bumped up to 9, and the 
raw_read_error_rate and hardware_crc_recovered fields plummeted from the 
millions down to like 13 ...and have since slowly risen to the 40's.

I can't tell what's going on with SMART values anymore, every vendor 
does things differently and nothing's ever documented. Is having the 
reallocated sectors value go up still a bad thing, or did seagate change 
what this means? Why did the read error rate and crc recovered fields 
bottom out, but the seek error rate is still in the clouds? Is this 
drive failing, or fine, or what?

portmaster -af fails due to dead port - HELP

I'm using freebsd-update to move from 8.4 RELEASE to 9.3 WHATEVER

I'm trying to upgrade my ports

I run portmaster -af

lots of messages, and then this:

===>>> The security/chkrootkit port has been deleted: Has expired: Fails to
build with new utmpx
===>>> Aborting update

and portmaster stops without updating anything.

How do I get past this.

/usr/ports/security/chkrootkit DOES NOT EXIST so I can't do "make
uninstall" there.

Thanks,
Bill Dudley

This email is free of malware because I run Linux.

Questions about current stable version of freebsd regarding drivers and desktop environment

Hello.

I have an Acer V3-772G laptop computer that has an Intel Haswell 
i7-4702QM CPU and integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600 graphics controller, 
and an nvidia GEForce GT750M graphics device, and the system has 32GB of 
RAM.

From the freebsd web site, I understand that version 10.1 is the latest 
stable version of freebsd.

Please advise as to whether this has drivers available for the above 
system.

Also, on the freebsd web site, at 
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/x11-wm.html ;
in the freebsd handbook,
Chapter 6 The X Window System 6.8 Desktop Environments ,
is indicated in 6.8.1 GNOME, that GNOME 2 is available for the current 
stable version of freebsd; which I understand is freebsd v 10.1.

Please confirm that GNOME 2 is available for the current stable version 
of freebsd.

I am trying to get a reasonably reliable operating system running on the 
Acer V3-772G, with the GNOME 2 desktop environment.

Thank you in anticipation.

Retransmission: oddball console (?) messages


I have been getting the following messages about once a day:

[root <at> kabini1, /etc, 5:54:48pm] 879 % 1435764066370 
addons.update-checker   WARN    Update manifest for

They seem innocuous, everything seems to be working AOK, but they are 
puzzling. Any clues where this is coming from & what it means ? TIA & 
have a good one :-) ....

Installing chrome web browser through pkg install.

Hi there,

According to section 7.2.4 in this page:
https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/desktop-browsers.html, to install chromium web browser,
one should run the command: pkg install chromium. Unfortunately, when I run it, pkg unable to find it and
emit the error message: pkg: No packages available to install matching 'chromium' have been found in the repositories.

My 'pkg' version is 1.5.4.

What's going wrong? I don't want to build the chromium browser from the ports.

Installing FreeBSD 10.1 to a partition.


I am trying to do something that would be trivial with
Linux.  Namely install FreeBSD to a partition on the
disk.

I have a 500GB disk, with 6 90GB partitions.
I have PCBSD in the first partition, and would like to
put FreeBSD in the 2nd.

Now nothing I have tried will have the FreeBSD installer
ask for a partition.  It wants to either overwrite the
1st partition, or if I remove partitions 2-6, it will 
try to create a partition out of the remainder of the 
disk, and not allow me to reduce the size of that
partiton.

Am I missing something?
Or is this just he way FreeBSD is? (I hope not)
