NetBSD on KA43 VAXstation 3176.
Tried to install NetBSD 3.0 on a VAXstation 3100 model 76. Machine runs VMS V7.2-1 fine. Setup: 32 MB RAM, KA43-A DKA100=IBM 0664 2 GB narrow SCSI drive, DKA200=Toshiba XM4101.
Bootstrap works O.K. At install: 1st attempt- failed at newfs, running newfs from shell nets error "/: write failed, filesystem full
 illegal instruction: newfs /dev/rsd0d"
when install runs disklabel -w -r -f /tmp/disktab sd0 'cremevax'
"Panic: segv in kernel mode: PC 80065faa addr 0
dumping" . . .
return to ">>>"
happened to two disks, was unable to verify my copy of NetBSD on VAX 4000/200 because NetBSD doesn't support KZQSA yet.
Do not have another NetBSD supported VAX to test on, should be repeatable with process in "full description" pane.
unable to get around this one. Manual tweaking in the shell simply moves the error elsewhere (panic error happened once during extraction of tarballs when I managed to get disk labeled and formatted)
