I've tested my machine (lc630) with softwareFPU and speedometers fpu benchmark, and it seems to work, so I concluded that my LC040 is alright.
I have now tried to install NetBSD, and been through a lot of setting up. But i still suffer from a lot of core dumps due to segfaults. I've tried switching to the sbc kernel, just in case, but to no avail.
I installed the libm....., which reduced the number of faults. So, I thought, I'll try to compile my own, but thats easier said than done on a machine that segfaults as often as mine does.
Are the errors I experience due to the FPE or is it something else, can I expect them to get solved if i manage to compile the libm?

thanx
