Hi!

Does FreeBSD 10.3 support Intel Pentium M processor?

I was waiting new release of FreeBSD 10.3, because I had serious problems with core.
Please, see my previous message. https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/60614/

When I installed new release of FreeBSD 10.3 I've got the same problems.
dmesg output is

I can't help you directly, but I see in your older post you found where the error was being thrown in kern_cpu.c.
You also say that 9.3 boots fine. Did you try and compare kern_cpu.c from 9.3 with the 10.3 version? Maybe that could give you a hint.

Hi !
Thank you Wozzeck.Live.
But it's don't help me.

System is working unstable. And I've often got system crash.

And I'm trying to solve problem with core.

Does FreeBSD 10.3 support Intel Pentium M processor?
It does.

Almost all i386™-compatible processors with a floating point unit are supported. All Intel® processors beginning with the 80486 are supported, including the 80486, Pentium®, Pentium® Pro, Pentium® II, Pentium® III, Pentium® 4, and variants thereof, such as the Xeon™ and Celeron® processors. All i386™-compatible AMD processors are also supported, including the Am486®, Am5x86®, K5, AMD-K6® (and variants), AMD Athlon™ (including Athlon-MP, Athlon-XP, Athlon-4, and Athlon Thunderbird), and AMD Duron™ processors. The AMD Élan SC520 embedded processor is supported. The Transmeta Crusoe is recognized and supported, as are i386™-compatible processors from Cyrix and NexGen.
https://www.freebsd.org/releases/10.3R/hardware.html

Issues like this are rarely related to the CPU, they're usually caused by a bad or broken ACPI implementation.

Hi !
I've attentively read all information on site, I've read books about FreeBSD and Intel Datasheet about Pentium M.

But when I switch off ACPI, then system don't boot.
And I've got a message with fatal trap 9 and CPUID=0.

I think the problem is frequency control of Pentium M CPU.

Thanks.

Please, have a look on this values
Code:
dev.est.0.freq_settings: 1200/-1 1100/-1 1000/-1 900/-1 800/-1 600/-1 1200/-1 1100/-1 1000/-1 900/-1 800/-1 600/-1
1200/-1 1100/-1 1000/-1 900/-1 800/-1 600/-1 1200/-1 1100/-1 1000/-1 900/-1 800/-1 600/-1

Is this right?

And when system is booting I get next messages
Code:
cpufreq: need to increase CF_MAX_LEVELS
cpufreq: need to increase CF_MAX_LEVELS
cpufreq: need to increase CF_MAX_LEVELS
cpufreq: need to increase CF_MAX_LEVELS
cpufreq: need to increase CF_MAX_LEVELS
cpufreq: need to increase CF_MAX_LEVELS
Is this OK?

Hi Wozzeck.Live!

I've checked kern.timecounter:

What Do You think about kern.timecounter.tc.TSC.*?

I can't launch powerd, because it's not run.
I've got next message:
Code:

But when I was using FreeBSD 9.2, kern.timecounter was:
Code:
kern.timecounter.fast_gettime: 1
kern.timecounter.tick: 1
kern.timecounter.choice: TSC(800) ACPI-fast(900) i8254(0) dummy(-1000000)

kern.timecounter.tsc_shift: 1
kern.timecounter.smp_tsc_adjust: 0
kern.timecounter.smp_tsc: 0
kern.timecounter.invariant_tsc: 0
And system was working GOOD!

Hi !
I was trying to boot
FreeBSD 10.3 r.321074 and
FreeBSD 11.1 r.321309 from CD.
I've got the same problems.

Thanks.

Hello!
I've analysed source code and come to conclusion, that original driver
of Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology doesn't support Intel Pentium M processor.

To solve my problem I've added next lines to the /boot/device.hints
Code:
hint.acpi_perf.0.disabled="1"
hint.est.0.disabled="1"
Also I've found est driver for the Intel Pentium M processor.
Have a look at the www.daemonology.net/freebsd-est/.

Now I'm trying to fix source file for my Sony VGN-T2XRP laptop.

Thanks to All.
And very big Thanks to Colin Percival!

p.s. Sorry for my English. I study it.
