NetBSD 1.5 NetBSD 1.5 (GENERIC) #1: Wed Nov 29 00:29:52 MET 2000     root@flambard:/usr/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/GENERIC sparc

two similar problems, probably same bug:

i installed netbsd 1.5-sparc onto a  hp scsi disk , 1003 MB,
seemed to work ok, i added a user, and 'cd /home' and caused a panic. upon rebooting, filesystems were completely hosed.  fsck -y took several minutes to run, fixing numerous (100's) of unlinked files, etc. following that, fsck would core dump every time.

second: dd'ing the good disk to the bad disk, despite different sizes, gets me

sd0(esp0:3:0):  Check Condition on CDB: 0x08 0c de 14 01 00
    SENSE KEY:  Illegal Request
   INFO FIELD:  843235
     ASC/ASCQ:  Logical Block Address Out of Range
         SKSV:  Error in CDB, Offset 1

scsi disk with a bad sector?
