Yeah, I saw that... I'm running a NetBSD 1.4C kernel though (haven't
upgraded userland stuff yet). And it doesn't mention what I need to do
to get it set up... there's not compat_osf1 manpage either.
BTW, I looked through the log files, and the panics I got were:
vrele: bad ref count: type
vrele: bad ref count: type VNON, usecount -3, writecount -1, refcount
vrele: bad ref count: type lfs, usecount -3, writecount -1, refcount
vrele: bad ref count: type VSOCK, usecount -3, writecount -1, refcount
So I guess it's not quite as random as I thought it was. The "type"
looks pretty random though, and from looking at the code in vfs_subr.c,
v_type contains junk... "lfs" is not a valid type, and neither is a null
Any idea why "trace" in ddb doesn't print anything?
