Subject: NetBSD-current on Compaq Proliant Bootproblem

$ I am trying to boot NetBSD-current on some Compaq Proliant servers for
$ a client. It fails to boot with error message:
$ uvm_page_physload: start >= end
$ This same kernel boots fine on other Intel hardware (a Dell laptop, a
$ HP Kayak PC and a Compaq DeskPro PC).
$ About 5 months ago I didn't have this problem booting -current on
$ these machines (-current of around May 2001). I suspect recent changes
$ to i386/machdep.c are to blame, but I'm a dummy wrt to such low-level
$ kernel code and have no clue on how to debug this.
$ Any suggestions?
How about trying next things:
1. define "options REALBASEMEM, options REALEXTMEM" in your config file.
2. define DEBUG_MEMLOAD in your sys/arch/i386/i386/machdep.c ,
and boot that kernel with serial console.
I think that the patch of port-i386/13399 may help you for your problem.
