System: NetBSD beasty.aprisoft.de 1.5Y NetBSD 1.5Y (BEASTY) #0: Tue Nov 20 17:25:21 CET 2001 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/sys-mp/arch/i386/compile/BEASTY i386
When using a serial console, this machine works very reliable. Booting the
same kernel with kbd/vga as console makes it panic after a few minutes
when doing a build.
It just reboots, no crashdump.
I was running X on the console in both situations, the only difference is
where the console is attached. I have options UCONSOLE and xconsole is
Kernel build from sources cvs updated yesterday, arch/i386 from the
sommerfeld SMP branch.
