  After reading about i386/smp for NetBSD, I decided to give it a try.  I 
read the instuctions at 
( and installed 
the latest 20010827-1.5X snapshot.  I have the following Hardware specs for 

Rioworks PDB-R SMP motherboard:
2 PII-333Mhz Procs
10.2gig HD

After installing the 20010827-1.5X snapshot, I checked out the sources for 
20010827 and installed the patch.  At first I couldn't get past the config 
program since it was looking for a file called "files.agp" (which I didn't 
have).  Later I was able to begin compiling the kernel.  I got the following 
error message about 8 mins later:

cc -x assembler-with-cpp -traditional-cpp -D_LOCORE -I. -I../../../../arch 
-I../../../.. -nostdinc -DCRYPTO_MD_DES_ENC -DCRYPTO_MD_BF_ENC -DLKM 
/tmp/cca5mmdG.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/cca5mmdG.s:1499: Error: no such 386 instruction: `data32'
*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC.MP
rm -f /onetbsd

how do I get rid of this error message?  I grabbed the latest -CURRENT code 
and I'm still getting this error when compiling a kernel.  I began to read 
the /usr/src/UPDATING file and don't see anything relating to this error.  
If anyone has any ideas on how to get rid of this error, please let me know.
