i have been having this problem ever since i upgraded to current, and i
haven't the slightest idea why. for some reason, whenever i try to
compile something on my netbsd-current/i386 as of may 5, '95, i get
random error code 139's and sig 11's every time. it also happens when
there is a large amount of disk activity. for example, whenever i try to
rebuild my whole system from source, i continually have to keep typing
"make" amidst all the sig 11's, until the compilation is finally done.
it is quite annoying at best.
i attribute this to my cyrix processor. i have tried turning the
internal cache off, but i still get the core dumps. under
netbsd-1.0/i386, the random core dumps would only happen if i had the
DUMMY_NOPS option in the kernel, but under -current, i now get the core
dumps all the time.
has anyone out there with a cyrix processor had the same problems? i
don't want to move back to -1.0 as i really enjoy the new stuff in
-current. can anyone sympathize with me? am i forced to fork out the
dough to by a new motherboard?
thanks for any help or suggestions for my problems.
