If this is a hardware problem, there's a lot of people with faulty hardware
(judging by number of article about this problem on comp.unix.amiga).
I did'nt notice any problem running with 16Meg, but I do when I
'loadbsd -m 4096' (with a 40Meg swap area).
The first time I tryed, I did a loadbsd -a -m 4096. The system booted
multi-user, no problem so far. I then trye to make tin-1.22. After
15min. of compiling, the kernel paniced with a vm_fault...
I tryed to reboot (loadbsd -a -m 4096), the kernel paniced everytime
during the daemons startup (after printer or inetd).
So, I suggest that people try starting netbsd with -m 4096, so we could
determine once and for all if there's a problem with the vm system of
Meanwhile, what should I do to provide useful info about this problem
(what conf. options should I use to have debugging info in the kernel,
what commands should I used in the kernel debugger) ?
BTW: This message is not intended to be a flame. If it appears so,
I deeply appologize, I did'nt mean too.
The above test were done on:
16Meg A3000 16MHz running current as of begining of January.
