	I am trying to debug a kernel on an alpha 3000, 300. When the
system crashes, and I reboot, savecore complains about bad device

> bad dev 809

Can someone help with the details about configuring savecore. I
rather have no understanding of how savecore works.

Also when I try to compile the current version of ddb, I get 
warnings and errors. Is there a patch or something I am missing.
I have an alpha running NetBSD which I booted from the rz25 disk
image and then compiled current sources.

Also if someone can give me adequate pointers about getting
info. about kernel debugging, it would be a great help. Atleast
some idea of where to start from. I would be deeply indebted.

Thanks in advance.
