Power management


I am trying to get APM working on my home server and I am having some issues.

The first is a minor one.

When I press the power button on the case, the computer correctly goes into 
a power down state, but it reports the following message...

"APM set power state <1,4>: unable to enter requested state (0x6007)"

It also does this when the computer is woken up (by starting an ssh session).

The other problem I am having is with the idle timers. I set up the BIOS to 
suspend after 5 minutes, but the system will stay up much longer than that. 
   I suspect that my BIOS is not properly set up, but the documentation for 
it is very sparse in the Power Management section.

It is a Via KM266 Chipset with an Athlon 1400 CPU.

I concur that this is a good idea.
I'll forward your request onto releng.

No, it's icewm-session which parses your .icewm/startup file.  You have to
replace icewm by icewm-session in your .xinitrc or wherever you start your
window manager from.

DMA error messages

Hi, does anyone know what the following errors mean? Does it mean the disk is
failing or may be it's a faulty chipset? I get a lot of these when copying data
on disk. Also enabling softdep on filesystem makes kernel panic, this is

'pkg_info -D cyrus-sasl' and read what it says

you need to install authentication modules under security/cy2* directories in

EuroBSDCon Call for paper deadline

Today is the deadline for EuroBSDCon 2005 call for paper. There are
not many NetBSD papers this year, so if you have something you could
talk about, it would be a good idea to submit a paper.

Here is the on-line form for doing it:

i'm using NetBSD or FreeBSD live CD or even knoppix. all three is much

No, this is not normal.

I think I've seen similar problems when I tried to update from a
CVS server other than the one found in CVS/Root, or a part of my
tree was updated from another than the rest of the tree, and I
tried to update the whole tree from one of them.  CVS really
likes your entire tree to come from a single CVS server, and
might be upset as above in case it doesn't.

Other problems of the same type can occur if your CVS/Entries
file is messed up, somehow.

All this from rather vague memories, so take with a pinch of
salt.

Without further details it is difficult to exactly tell what is
your particular problem.
