PCBSD 9.1 - Bugginess experiences, so far

9.1 is sure the closest thing we have had to a very useful PC platform.

Love it, in principle !!


The overall impression is one of periodic bugginess. The delays in operation set in as soon as the Internet browser is fired up, for example.

Then both processors got up to 70%usage and nothing much happens - it locks up, a lot.

Its almost like PC-BSD is a hackers delight, in that the machine is being taken over as soon as it goes online - - -

At this point in time, 490 processes are typically running, but nothing is happening - the machine is stuck.

Suddenly, after leaving it for an hour it may free up - and then it runs normally. Using Firefox - or Opera has the same effects sometimes - but at different times. The difference between the bugginess in either of these Browsers is mainly that it will happen at different times - or under different circumstances.

Firefox 18.01 runs great once this bugginess resolves, if it does.

Hardware = HP Dual AMD 64, 6Gbyte DDR-2 Ram, .

Btw, Gnome 2 is the most stable Desktop - I tried them all. Also it does some Power Management whereas the others are hopeless at Hard Disk preservation.

I suggest specializing in setting up with Gnome 2, as Fuduntu have done.

I've never been able to duplicate anything close to your 490 processes result. Since I find it very unlikely that this is even a legitimate post i'm going to go ahead and close it. If you can provide me with a top log of your 490 processes running and specific details of actual bugs I will reopen and we will gladly investigate the issue. Have a nice day
