Re: [PATCH] Fix interrupt handling in ral(4) for RT2661 under load

No, the driver code is a completely different C file.  It's possible
there are analogous bugs for 2860 though, since the hardware and
driver are both closely related to 2661.

Hello,

I am the maintainer of the new oBSD mirror, ftp.lambdaserver.com
(Chicago), and I'm experiencing the proverbial "technical
difficulties." Basically, the power cord to my modem fried (after 2+
years) and I'm awaiting a replacement (+ one). The ISP hassle is in
progress and I welcome any suggestions to avoid the di-opoly
(at&t/comcast) BS.

Thanks for your patience and I promise to keep such situations to a
minimum, in the future (live-n-learn). Please be assured that I am
committed to maintaining a stable mirror.

Experimenting with softraid encryption

I wrote some notes about installing and experimenting with softraid
encryption on laptops. I was wondering if misc would have a read and
perhaps make suggestions or corrections to my approach? I appreciate
any feedback.

Nope (though I was considering it) but it's gotten better
mysteriously. Sorry for the noise.

I believe I now remember why I vhids should be different

The lladdr of a carp interface is 00:00:5e:00:01:vhid.

Now in the (atypical, I know) case that both carp interface share the
same physical network, this is asking for trouble. Also, even if they
do not share the same network, it is still confusing when reading logs
etc. That's why I consider it a good thing to avoid reusing vhids.

Limit speed of dvd-drive

Hi!

I'm searching for the OpenBSD equivalent to 'hdparm -E'
which sets the drive speed of a cd/dvd drive.
Google did only find an old post without replies.
Is there a way to do this in OpenBSD?

Stopped at pf_test_rule+0xa87

Got the following error on 2 identical firewalls last night:

uvm_fault(0xd0891180, 0x0 0, 3) -> e
kernel: page fault trap, code=0
Stopped at    pf_test_rule+0xa87:   movl  %ecx,0x4(%eax)

OpenBSD 4.6 installed from the ISO /OpenBSD/4.6/i386/install46.iso

Hardware is a Dell R200 with 2 onboard broadcom NIC interfaces and a 4 port
Intel PRO/1000 card. 2GB RAM and a single SATA hard drive.

We have 2 of these servers in a failover configuration using PFsync and CARP
utilising 5 NICs:
2 connected to external lines and 2 to internal departments and a 5th for
pfsync.

Having previously been up for a couple of weeks both were rebooted at the
weekend but then both crashed last night after little more than 24h uptime.
They crashed at different times in the night. Both were at the DDB prompt
and showing exactly the same error:

uvm_fault(0xd0891180, 0x0 0, 3) -> e
kernel: page fault trap, code=0
Stopped at    pf_test_rule+0xa87:   movl  %ecx,0x4(%eax)

and then the ddb{0}> prompt. no mention of a panic

picture here - http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/4571/cpicture.jpg

Unfortunately both were rebooted before I could do a trace.
