Re: (amd64) Boot loader's "load" command not working?

   Interesting. This would explain why my usual method of installing
from a release build by putting:

menu=Install NetBSD:load /miniroot.kmod;boot install

   in my boot.cfg and these links:

lrwxrwxr-x   1 root  wheel          92 Jan 24  2011 miniroot.kmod@ -> 
lrwxrwxr-x   1 root  wheel          56 Jan 24  2011 amd64@ -> 
lrwxrwxr-x   1 root  wheel          57 Jan 24  2011 install@ -> 

   in / hit a panic in scan_sig+0x52 today, but the install CD worked.
