I have been doing different things on the crashing i486 system and it
seems that disk I/O is unreliable, for some reason or another. Maybe
the hardware is faulty, maybe NetBSD just doesn't like the hardware.
gcc reads source files wrong; cmp file file reports errors at random
locations; tar zxf whines about healthy files.
Removing the second IDE disk made the system work a bit better, but
not 100% reliably.
We will try again tomorrow on different hardware. I will report the
results. Several people have e-mailed to me and told that -current
works fine for them, so I'm beginning to think that this is not a
problem in the -current kernels, but a problem specific to the hard-
ware we are using now.
Thanks to all who have tried to help me. It's great to see that
NetBSD users want to help each other :-)
