System: NetBSD babylon-sound-system 1.6P NetBSD 1.6P (BABYLON_SOUND_SYSTEM) #3: Mon Mar 17 00:35:54 EST 2003 rafal@stinkpad:/usr/rafal/netbsd-src/sys/arch/sgimips/compile/BABYLON_SOUND_SYSTEM sgimips
I believe this is not sgi specific and impacts all MIPS ports.
The combination of 1.6 ld.elf_so and 1.6P causes all dynamic
binaries to fall over with nonsensical corefiles. Replacing
the dynamic linker with one built from -current makes things
I *believe* that this worked with a 1.6O kernel for me, but
Ilpo (lonewolf@) reports that 1.6N kernel with a 1.6 userland
experiences the same problem.
Install recent -current kernel on a MIPS (sgimips in my case)
machine which still has a 1.6 (or much older post-1.6 current)
Attempt to run dynamic binaries. Watch them go "Boom!".
None, I'm not even sure *why* things fall over, but wanted to
file a PR before it slipped through the cracks.
This has been happening on my systems since somewhere
between 1.6N and 1.6P, IIRC.
