System: NetBSD zen.quick.com.au 1.2C NetBSD 1.2C (ZEN) #5: Mon Mar 3 16:18:58 EST 1997 email@example.com:/share/usr.src/sys/arch/i386/compile/ZEN i386
Kernel: page fault trap, code=0
Stopped at _vm_fault+0x59: mov 0x22(%esi),%ax
In this case a trace showed no more info, and attempts to c (to get a
core dump) or call _boot etc just got another page fault.
This has happend twice this week now. kern/2673 was the only PR I
could find that mentioned _vm_fault, so here we are.
BTW, I've not yet tried the latest sources (I will), though I could
not find any sources under sys/vm which have been updated thince March
Each time this has happened my overnight cron jobs result in a rash of
sh.core files - all from segmentation faults.
I'm sorry I can't provide more useful info.
