Hi! I've got a SPARCstation 10 running NetBSD 1.3.3, and I want to move it to
-current so I can make it build day in and day out, which is a nicer task than
making the silly thing run SETI@Home so its stats can be dropped. :)

So, anyway, I decided to take the easy route and put the miniroot in my swap
partition, and go from there. I started off, and the kernel (from 19990810,
I think) began loading and probing. And then:

(Copied by hand, so it may contain mistakes...)

cgsix0 at sbus0 slot 0 offset 0x0 level 9: SUNW, 501-1481, 1152 x 900,
rev 2 (console)data fault: pc=0xf0180a5c addr=0x4ef4a660 sfsr=126<PERR=0,
panic: kernel fault

Under 1.3.3, the video card shows up as follows:

cgsix0 at sbus0 slot 0 offset 0x0: SUNW,501-1481, 1152 x 900, rev 2 (console)
cgsix0: attached to /dev/fb

The complete 1.3.3 dmesg is attached, in case it's useful.

Is moving to -current going to be an option for me? This box is used as a
workstation enough so that I don't want to lose the ability of it to run

Thanks in advance for help.
