I hope that there is someone who can help me pin this down. My Amiga
2000 (blizzard 2060 128MB ram) is crashing about every 2 to 4 days
after upgrading from NetBSD 4 Beta (John Klos's binaries) to the
latest NetBSD 4_stable.
Is it a kernel panic? No information in /var/log/messages? And no
system dump in /var/crash?
I don't think it is a kernel panic, it doesn't make it to one. I think
that it is because it just can't allocate anymore files. Although, I
should see if I could find a way to see how many file descriptors are in use.

look at the drive on another system that has like 5 million files on
it's exported partition.
Hmm... did you keep an eye on the memory allocation? Maybe the system
is running out of physical and swap memory due to a bug?
Well, I have the 128MB of physical memory and I have setup 1.5 GB of swap.
It seems memory related, but I am not sure. How would I know if it could
not address all of the swap.
ISTR there were some issues with it in the past (?).
How would I look at this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I know you don't want to hear that, because it probably means that you
have to rebuild your pkgsrc, but it might be the best to update to a
recent kernel. Either 5.1.2 or the upcoming 6.0. NetBSD4 is not really
known as a good release. ;)
Is NetBSD 6 where it is ready for production use and does it support NFS?
I have been thinking my next step is to upgrade to 5.1.2, I just wanted to
know if anyone has done this remotely from 4.0. Will the system start ssh
after I install the 5.1.2 kernel, but before I have 5.1.2 userland
installed? Although, I may need to do the building on another system,
because it may crash before it gets anything done.
I just wish that I knew what I did with the old kernel I was using, it
would only crash every few months or if I tried to use anoncvs.
Thanks for all your help!
