Anyone seen this:
NetBSD locks up with SCSI LED off in the midst of normal usage, like
extracting files from a tar archive. No error messages, no panic,
just a complete lock-up.
Running NetBSD -Current2 on A3000/16MB + 61 MB swap. Disks: IBM Spitfire,
Quantum 170 MB.
I heard a rumour that Quantum drives may cause crashes because of some
errors in their SCSI interface - is this true? How can a drive make
the machine crash? I _do_ have swap on the Quantum, so if there are
random transfer errors, that could cause the crashes, of course.. But
my system was up for 11 days in a row without any problems. Makes me
think the drives work well.
Any ideas? A hidden bug somewhere? Scary. :-I
