Odd question I guess but here is the situation. I thought that it was time to
bump the home system (i386) up to -current from -current 1.6Q Mar 22/03. I
built and installed a new kernel with today's sources and got the following
message (as read from the screen by my wife over the phone to me.)
syslogd:unknown property name 'local0'
kernel page fault trap code = 0
stop at NetBSD:syn_cache_get+0x308:movl0(%edx),%ecx
Now, I wonder if I should be concerned about this or will it be fixed if I
build the userland programs. Oddly enough, this version is running elsewhere
with no problems on a system that we couldn't keep up for 30 minutes under
1.6.1. We updated the kernel there so that we could use a different SCSI
controller so we suspect that there was a hardware issue on that one.,
I'm not sure what to do here. I understood that it was generally safe to
update the kernel without updating the rest of the system. Hopefully that's
still true and this is an anomaly.
