can't get uname because the system won't install.
I've tried the following combinations:
NetBSD 3.1-AMD64 under AMD Athlon64 / vmware 5.5.3 - worked fine!
NetBSD 3.1-AMD64 under Intel E8400 / vmware 5.5.3 (Core2Duo) installer hung
NetBSD 4.0-AMD64 under Intel E8400 / vmware 5.5.3 (Core2Duo) installer hung
NetBSD 3.1-AMD64 under Intel E8400 / vmware 6.0.4 (Core2Duo) installer hung
NetBSD 4.0-AMD64 under Intel E8400 / vmware 6.0.4 (Core2Duo) installer hung
looks like it's something to do with Intel or VmWare, but probably you may know
I checked the following:
-tried VM installed under AMD64bit hardware (which worked fine). It hung when I
tried to compile my project.
-tried to install multiple times, with different sets and different kernel (mp
vs non-mp), it hung while installing base or comp or another set
-tried different versions of VmWare and NetBSD. It's all the same.
-tried Other 64bit guest OS vs FreeBSD 64bit gues OS. Didn't help.
What constantly works fine:
32bit NetBSD under the same Intel hardware.
FreeBSD 32 and 64bit under the same Intel hardware
OpenBSD 32 and 64bit under the same Intel hardware.
it's only 64bit that fails.
and it hangs randomly.
Logs shows that it can't even print complete file name.
Is there any way to create installer logs under VmWare to submit them there?
try to install NetBSD 3.1 or 4.0 / AMD64 under VmWare 5.5.x or 6.0.x / Intel
