:Hi all,
:My workstation panics upon downloading via bittorrent. Weird huh!
:Anyway, ive got vmcore dumps set to swap(which is twice the size of physical 
:memory). Anyway, when I type panic in ddb, it sets of to create a core dump 
:but stops on block 1022(which is like the first number that comes up anyway) 
:and doesn't go any further. ive tried setting kern.sync_on_panic to 0 but 
:that doesn't help at all.
:What to do?

    Can you do a 'trace' from the ddb> prompt ?  That might give us enough
    information to track it down.  Plus the panic message itself and fault
    address info.

    Sometimes it's easier just to take a digital photo of your screen instead
    of writing it all down :-)

    When did this start happening?  Any particular version or date when you
    updated your sources and it began happening ?
