#7127 closed bug (duplicate)

System freeze after bootup, most probably because of nForce Ethernet driver

Description

On my desktop PC, Haiku freezes a few seconds after the desktop shows up. Experimenting with disabling onboard devices in the BIOS let me find out that Haiku works fine when onboard Ethernet adapter (nForce) is disabled.

Further information (I will abbreviate 'nForce Ethernet adapter' as NFE now):

  • I'm attaching two text files with output from KDL "ints" command (one with NFE enabled in BIOS, one where it's disabled). With NFE enabled, there is a big number of interrupts for nforce:nfe_intr -- and this is just 10-15 seconds after bootup, when the system was already frozen. Also, with NFE enabled, there are a lot of unhandled apic_timer_interrupt.
  • Also attaching two complete bootlogs, one for NFE enabled, one where it's disabled
  • Since the system only works with NFE disabled, listdev, listimage and listusb are only provided with NFE disabled.
  • Something I noticed which might be of interest too, not sure if it's related to my issues: When I start the listusb command in the terminal, it takes 5-6 seconds to finish, it makes several pauses while outputting USB device info.
  • This issue seems similar to #3260 , however that one was marked as fixed long ago

System information:

  • Asus A8N-VM CSM mainboard with nForce 430 chipset
  • Haiku nightly revision 40229

(In #5) All but one of the blocking tickets have been closed out, and that one just needs confirmation as to whether it's been fixed or not. So I say let's close this one out as being fixed, seeing as the reported symptoms have gone away.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
