I had NetBSD 4.0 running on my SS5 with no trouble, but I couldn't
resist trying a shiny new version. 5.0 installed and boots without
trouble, but it locks up shortly after I log in.
The lockups seem to have to do with console output that includes long
lines (not necessarily exceeding the number of columns) and an
newline. Usually the long line after the newline is truncated (but
terminating newline still scrolls), I get a shell prompt, and that's
No panic, no messages of any sort, no response to anything but Stop-A.
The machine is a pretty standard 170 MHz model, with a CG6 console.
I have a machine like that, and I have several CG6, one of them in the
SS20 - I have never seen this problem. There was a problem with the
cg6 driver a while ago which would result in kernel memory being
scribbled over during palette changes which would later on panic the
machine but that has been fixed.
Do you have a short and reliable way to reproduce this?
