Well, on my hp400s which has an Oct 9 kernel:

NetBSD 1.0A (GENERIC) #43: Mon Oct  9 19:48:13 PDT 1995
HP9000/345/375 (50MHz MC68030 CPU+MMU, 50MHz MC68882 FPU, 32K physical-address cache)

This is on a machine running X on 2 heads...

However, at work I have a P-60 with 16mb of ram, and I was seeing the
Xserver die occasionally due to "Out of memory". By occasionally I mean
every night for about 3 days. Haven't seen it in a week or so though.
The only thing I can think of is that on those 3 or 4 days, I was playing
around with 'vat' and other mbone stuff... mrouted was running too...
