Re: port-i386/55106: Less command locks computer

Laptop not running X. Command line only.  
On login says: NetBSD/i386 (Amnesiac) (constty)

less locks up computer when scrolling large text file, like 
/usr/src/UPDATING. When I begin to scroll down the file, less command locks up  the PC half way through reading the file. Keyboard becomes non responsive

 It certainly does not do that for most of us. You need to provide more
 information of what you actually do and what happens.

  1) are you in X or on a wscons console?
  2) can you switch virtual terminals after the lock? (with Ctrl-Alt-F1...F4)
  2) can you break into ddb when it locks up (Ctrl-Alt-Esc)? If that works
     type bt<ENTER> and take a phote
  3) does it happen for all files?

 ... probably more that I forgot
