Greetings. This may be sparc-specific but, unless I get feedback to that
effect, I will assume that this is not the case.
Machine: SS2, 48MB of physmem, though /kern/physmem reports
12254, so I have to wonder...is this in pages (4k)
OS: NetBSD 1.1 release (24 November 1995)
I type 'pstat -s', and I get the following:
Device 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Type
/dev/sd0b 67220 4 67216 0% Interleaved
/dev/sd3b 51480 4 51476 0% Interleaved
Total 118700 8 118692 0%
Does someone *really* expect me to believe that no swap/paging space is
being used?? I have to wonder because while I have a kernel compile going,
when I suspend the compile to get my shell back, occasionally the disk pages
like crazy to resume the shell.
(Of course it didn't happen the last two times I tried it; maybe it was
just paging executable pages into memory...)
[For my next trick I'm going to find out how the mount_mfs determines
the "defaults" used when a "swap" parameter is passed in instead of
-s=[# of sectors]... ]
Greywolf's postulate #1:
If your OS and/or machine absolutely cannot autoboot without manual
intervention, it isn't worth jack.
