Re: Problems with NetBSD 6.0.1

Today I tried to install NetBSD 6.0.1 from the macppc CD and I ran
into several problems.
For starters, copying ofwboot.xcf to a small HFS partition and
using that to boot the kernel off of the FFS filesystem, similarly
to what's mentioned here, doesn't work:
Here's what happens:
I thought this might be due to the size of the kernel which is
currently more than 8 megs, so I tried gzipping it. Now it boots
fine, although USB is problematic, but I'll look into that
separately. The same issue happens if the kernel or gzipped kernel
is on the HFS partition.
Second, if the FFS filesystem is v2, the system panics when
mounting. I don't have a picture of that yet.
Is this a known problem of ofwboot.xcf?
I am having increased problems since switching to NetBSD 6.0.1 on one
of my servers. I don't think that I will be able to compile userland
again on it, it is just too unstable. The system is crashing every 3
or 4 days and that is even if I reboot it everyday. I really don't
know what to do, but I need to find away to make it work. There is an
issue with whatever card is in PCI slot 3, at least if it is a
network card. I have another system which is just like that one here
at home and under NetBSD 5.1 I don't have this problem. The system
that I have NetBSD 5.1 on is running diskless, but seems stable, yet
I can't get it to compile the source tree.
