Perhaps... but they're *cute* :-)

I have one (well, more than one, but the others are for parts).  I've
played around with NetBSD 4 and 5 on it, and I'm getting ready to try
again with 6.0.

I had noticed some apparent stability problems -- random compile errors
and segfaults while building a kernel, never reproducible.  I was going
to try swapping some parts around, figuring it was some marginal
hardware somewhere.

But if it's a general Multia issue, I don't want to waste time on it.

So -- is anyone else with a Multia finding it's "not stable"?

Pathetic is another matter... that kernel build runs overnight.  But I
just want a small box that doesn't take much power to use as a firewall,
and that doesn't take a monster machine.
