After the release of FreeBSD on 06 Nov 2004, i wanted to do a test installation in my laptop, a Toshiba Pro M10.
Of course it didn’t succeded. The machine hung with a GIANT-LOCKED after probing the onboard USB controller. I didn’t have more time to investigate it so i did an abort.
Today i downloaded FreeSBIE, a freebsd [url]www.freesbie.org/[/url] live cd similar to knoppix, and try to see if it boot. Same error again.
Now it is time to find a solution. Doing a little search on google it appears that i am not the only person with the same problem, but i didn’t find a clear solution.
Disabling acpi didn’t help. The last message just for reference is the following:
uhci0: Reserved 0x20 bytes for rid 0x20 type 4 at 0xefe0
I will look at it again in the weekend. It is too bad i cannot run freebsd in my laptop 🙁
