Yesterday and today I started the process of updating my machines to match the latest stable/7 branch of FreeBSD. That is 7.1 with a few additional MFC’s here and there.
So far that works as expected without much hassle.
One thing I hope to never see again is “throttling interrupt” for my atapci0 controller, which is common on hetzner machines. Funny thing is that only AMD64 machines appear to hit that (my i386 machine there works fine).
A few more machines to go, but so far I like my own dogfood. You can see more information in the ‘my systems’ page.
