I am having a problem on my i386 where /var/db/kvm.db is not being remade
when I change kernels and reboot. I have all the right libraries and
includes and binaries. If I run kvm_mkdb the file does not change. But if
I delete the file and then run kvm_mkdb, kvm.db gets rebuilt and everything
is happy once again.
This is effecting all the programs you would expect. ps, netstat, ...
kvm_mkdb seems broken in how it detects if changes are needed. But I
haven't had a chance to track this down further.
