Re: Fairly stable -current build, and questions?

Yes, the omnicube is a four port KVM PS/2 switch - only in console as
so far I've not got X up and running. I'll try and provide exact
replication steps. The problems aren't isolated to NetBSD, though, as
if I boot up Vista x64 SP1 without switching to it on the KVM, it
can't see the keyboard, whilst OS/2 won't see the mouse if it's not
switched to that on bootup. (I'm waiting for a better 8 port switche
to arrive on ebay..).
Upon trying tonight the bug proves to be more elusive. However, one
thing I did do was plug the mouse (a USB one with PS/2 converter) more
securely into the KVM.
Ok, so it's not likely a NetBSD problem.
I can't be much more specific about the spontaneous reboot problem -
the system won't stay up for longer than a couple of minutes, and
running 'grep -i "** NAME"' (or similar, to display the card names)
against the X11 Cards file never gets to the end before the system
does an instant black screen reboot. It'll generally reboot anyway,
but that's the test I'm currently using.
I'll see if I can reproduce it.
It's definitely possible to hang the system/stop it accepting input by
fiddling around with the KVM. I suppose it's debateable whether or not
this is a bug or not, but other operating systems aren't affected in the
same way. I'd hazard a guess that the PS/2 code might need a bit more
work, but in the absence of some better debugging, this is no more than
an educated guess.
The filesystems are all ffs, so non ffs code can't be the issue.
