Here are some observations regarding installing on rx2620, more precisely, the difference between installing on a local disk and on a fibre disk. In both cases mpt(4) is used.
When installing on a local 17G disk, I get stopped at:
Extracting base into / directory...
4170752 bytes read from base dist, chunk 3 of 59 @ 1390.2 KBytes/sec.
no panic, no reboot, just sits there indefinitely
Can you break into the kernel debugger and run the following commands: ps show alllocks show intrcnt
BTW: I've had weird behaviour that got resolved for the most part by doing a firmware update, including the firmware on the harddisk itself. Can you list all the firmware versions for me, including the harddisk's. I want to check if there are any updates...
Also: this may be related to the spontaneous reboots we're seeing during package build...
lock order reversal:
1st 0xa00000007d58cc18 bufwait (bufwait) @ /usr/src/sys/kern/vfs_bio.c:2559
2nd 0xe00000001197ae00 dirhash (dirhash) @
/usr/src/sys/ufs/ufs/ufs_dirhash.c:285 *snip* the best match I could find is this: http://sources.zabbadoz.net/freebsd/lor/261.html
I wouldn't worry about LORs at this time. As far as I know they're harmless enough...
Finally, when I install on a disk via fibre, and all was fine, no problems, I cannot find a bootable partition on the disk. Below is an extract from EFI map:
Device mapping table fs0 : Acpi(HWP0002,100)/Pci(1|0)/Scsi(Pun1,Lun0)/HD(Part1,Sig79A0351D-DB3C-11 DE-8F43-00110A31E60A) fs1 : Acpi(HWP0002,600)/Pci(1|0)/Fibre(WWN500805F3000EC221,Lun2000000000000)/ HD(Part1,Sig0044C4A1-3543-11DC-81DF-AA000400FEFF) fs2 : Acpi(HWP0002,600)/Pci(1|0)/Fibre(WWN500805F3000EC221,Lun2000000000000)/ HD(Part4,Sig0044C4A0-3543-11DC-81E0-AA000400FEFF)
You seem to be having multiple EFI system partitions on the Fibre disk. There can be only one.
On fs1 I've VMS bootable, fs2 must be the freebsd disk, but it's empty.
That's not how it works. fs1: is the EFI system partition on the fibre disk. It should contain the VMS and FreeBSD loaders.
If I manually copy loader.efi from anothe ia64 box to fs2, I can't then find a kernel.
You need to pass -dev part<X>: to the loader, where <X> is the right partition number.
Put differently: you need to tell the loader which partition is the FreeBSD partition you want to boot. For backward compatibility it'll use the partition from which the loader itself was loaded (i.e. fs2 in your case), but if you used sysinstall, the kernel is most likely on fs1:...
