The last two crashes are essentially identical, but the first one is different, so there are a number of possibilities here. The first one, as always, is to check the memory in the machine. There are other possible hardware faults, but bad RAM is much more common. Install a GENERIC kernel if you aren't running one already, and see if that has any effect. Once you've done those, consult the kernel debugging chapter in (if I recall correctly) the Developers' Handbook.

Disabling something like an automatic reboot would be a bad idea....It wont fix the issue, your system is rebooting for a reason (looks like kernel panic at first glance) and you need to fix it. Otherwise the problem will only get worse as well as the side effects.

I would download the Ultimate Boot CD from Ultimate Boot CD. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
Burn it, boot the cd rom on your computer, and run memtest as well as cpuburn.

After that you will know if you have the problems with the CPU or the RAM.

agreed. If it finds anything then your best bet is most likely to take out all your RAM and check each individual piece separately to find where the fault is. Again, assuming it finds any issues/errors.

Thanks for reply ,

I found the problem (but not the solution) .

I've 3 virtual machine installed on vmware workstation for testing :

VM1 - FreeBSD 8 (full updated)
VM2 - FreeBSD 7.3 (full updated)
VM3 - pcBSD 8

VM1 and VM2 crash sometime with the same error messages (like previous post) but VM3 (pcbsd) not .

I've tried to compare the file /etc/rc.conf and /boot/loader.conf installed on all VMs but there'nt any difference that can solve my problem .

To found the problem I've tried to disable hald (by comment line hald_enable="YES") and VM1 and VM2 (FreeBSDx) dont crash anymore .
When I reenable hald the problem appear again .
I remove hal and reinstall again but this not solve my problem .

/etc/rc.conf worked on freeBSDx VMs

Code:
defaultrouter="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
hostname="freebsd.freebsd"
ifconfig_em0="inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx  netmask 255.255.255.0"

keymap="it.iso"
linux_enable="YES"
sshd_enable="YES"

devd_enable="YES"
moused_enable="YES"
dbus_enable="YES"
polkitd_enable="YES"
#hald_enable="YES"

ntpdate_enable="YES"
ntpd_enable="YES"


/boot/loader.conf

Code:
# Kernel Options from pcBSD configuration added for try to solve problem
kern.ipc.shmseg=1024
kern.ipc.shmmni=1024

hint.acpi.0.disabled="1"


any suggestion ?

Thanks

solved

I've create a xorg.conf file with
Code:
Xorg -configure
, copy it on /etc/X11/ and disable hal on /etc/rc.conf (I know that it's not a professional solution) .

Now my freebsd8 machine works fine and dont reboot automatic .

Thanks all
