    FreeBSD

    I currently have a toshiba satellite M40.
    When installing freebsd on it everything goes fine until i have to download the sources, this is where i get this message: "r10 watchdog timeout"
    My BIOS hasnt got the option to disable plug and play to fix the clashing of the irq's.
    Has this happened to anyone before and if so how did you resolve the issue?
    And does anyone know if they have fixed this problem with the release of 6.2?

    Does it use the ports collection?
    How similar is it to freebsd?

    It is very similar to FreeBSD. Give it a try. A two hour investment will be well worth it.

    PS
    Yes, the ports collection was in the build that I played with.

    I just tried PC-BSD, got the same error when doing anything network oriented.
    Ill try desktopBSD but im more than likely going to run into this error again.

    PC and DesktopBSD are very similar. I would imagine you will run into the issue again. Either way, let us know what happens.

    That's probably rl0 ( R-L-zero) not r10, rl is the realtek driver. I had some issues with it too. But these were mostly with the proprietary nvidia xorg drivers and rl/re drivers (resulted in the same watchdog timer messages). The nvidia drivers are not installed with any of the releases of fbsd so that shouldn't be an issue.

    Sharing interrupts shouldn't be any problem either but my experiences with the rl/re drivers tell me otherwise. You could just try 6.2, not sure which version you tried to install (6.2 has been released some time ago)?
