I have a 3000/400 that I recently loaded 3.0_BETA on. bootstrapping the
world seems like a good torture test, so I started off a build.sh. it
died linking the GENERIC.MP kernel, complaining about not enough swap.
the machine has 96MB of RAM and 128MB of swap, so I figured during a
build.sh it probably has a lot of stuff going on, so I added a 512MB
swapfile, and rebuilt GENERIC.MP:
Kernels built from GENERIC.MP:
build.sh started: Sun Mar 5 20:49:10 PST 2006
build.sh ended: Mon Mar 6 03:06:48 PST 2006
over six hours to build a kernel? that seems incredibly excessive, even
for a 133MHz machine.
now that I've verified I can get through this part of the world build,
I'm going to start off another build.sh for netbsd-3... maybe I should
race it against a 25MHz decstation as a sanity check?
