Re: Fairly stable -current build, and questions?

Sorry, it would help if I was more informative, wouldn't it?

It's an O2 with an R5000 180Mhz 512Kb cache, 128MB RAM and 9GB disk. A/V
board, although that shouldn't make a difference. If necessary, I also have
an O2 with R5000 200MHz 1MB cache with 400ish MB RAM I could just slot the
disk in to test.

The kernel I built was right up to date with cvs, but I'll try again by
updating from code a couple of weeks back.

Yes, the omnicube is a four port KVM PS/2 switch - only in console as so far
I've not got X up and running. I'll try and provide exact replication steps.
The problems aren't isolated to NetBSD, though, as if I boot up Vista x64
SP1 without switching to it on the KVM, it can't see the keyboard, whilst
OS/2 won't see the mouse if it's not switched to that on bootup. (I'm
waiting for a better 8 port switche to arrive on ebay..).

I can't be much more specific about the spontaneous reboot problem - the
system won't stay up for longer than a couple of minutes, and running
'grep -i "** NAME"' (or similar, to display the card names) against the X11
Cards file never gets to the end before the system does an instant black
screen reboot. It'll generally reboot anyway, but that's the test I'm
currently using.

I'll double check which filesystems I'm using, as I'm running seperate /,
/usr, /tmp, /var and /home. /etc is obviously on / partition and thus ffs,
so greping a file on /etc is probably a red herring. As mentioned though,
the kernel is the only file I've updated from 4.0 (the bootloader still
displays 4.0-RC4 - I'm guessing this is not an issue).
