"You know, I think I can hear the machine screaming from here... \
'help me! hellpp meeee!'" - Heather Flanagan, 14:52:23 Wed Jun 10 1998
System: 486SX 33 MHz, 8 megs RAM. GENERIC NetBSD 1.4Z (snapshot from May 27th)
The math emulation appears to be incomplete. The ping program seems
to work fine, but then when I control-C it I get something like:
5 packets transmitted, 5 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
math_emulate: 0xd9fa not implemented
Illegal instruction (core dumped)
(It happens with the GENERIC kernel and also with the SMALL boot floppy.)
Boot a 486SX, ping something, watch ping dump core when you stop ping.
If you booted from the boot floppy, watch your install blow up because
ping will never exit with a 0 return code (because it dumped core). Watch
your install filesystem fill up with the corefile.
Finish the math emulation?
