What is your memory configuration, 4 Meg ???
I don't know if this is somehow related with your problem, but I
can't go or boot multi-user (VM-Fault, MMU Panic) when I 'loadbsd'
with the -m 4096 ?? (can't remember exactly, but it's the option
that let you specify the mem. conf. to NetBSD) on my 16Meg A3000.
I tried this on a Generic and my own user build A3000 kernel without
Maybe, the 'at least 4Meg of RAM' requirement for NetBSD-Amiga is no
longer valid ...
My 0.02$ cents worth.
