I'm running 1.2.1 on my Sun4/260, and have just received some
new 32meg memory cards. This has made the system wonderfully more
usable, but I just got a 'correctible memory error' in a seemingly
endless loop from the system.
The address it was complaining about never changed, and
it just kept scrolling up my console. It appears that while
NetBSD now recognises these faults (good job guys), it's somehow
messing up in dealing with them.
Coincidentally, none of the error lights were lit on any
of the cards... eprom memory test after eprom memory test turn up
clean. Any ideas?
