> I recently installed netbsd for macppc on a Powerbook G3/266 (netbsd

> When I try to install I get errors:

> Validating Dependencies
> ...and it freezes there.
> I was told that this might have something to do with my /proc
> filesystem. But there is no /proc.
> I was told that I should:
> #sysctl -w kern.maxproc=2500 (instead of the default 532) but that doesn't
> This exact problem occurs (it seems) with all big installs (e.g., kde,
> gnome, afterstep, abiword, etc.).
> The final error message (after a bunch of error 1 messages, is "unable to
> make dependencies".
> Any idea what this problem can be?
> Please help.
