What should I make of this?
« on: December 13, 2009, 01:48:46 am »
Version   1.2.2
      built on Thu Jan 8 22:30:24 EST 2009
      FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE-p8 i386
Platform   pfSense
CPU Type   AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+ 


Been seeing strange errors showing up on my terminal screen. Searched a bit online and found that BSD doesn't always like AMD power saving modes. I run this in a VM under Xenserver 5.5, so I rebooted the whole box to turn off CPU powersaving / throttling. That made the issue go away for a while, but it resurfaced. I see 1.2.3 is out so I will upgrade to that, but what should I expect?

No love. I updated, re-installed all the packages I had in use to clear up any incompatibilities that might have surfaced with the upgrade, rebooted. Everything seems fine for a few minutes then it spews out a bunch more...

That means your system's clock is running backwards, which is generally a BIOS bug. Make sure you're on the latest BIOS version, that usually fixes it. If it doesn't, disabling ACPI might.
