Hi Keith, all of port-sun3,

Same here with my 3/60M: I've got /usr/X11R6/xdm as the final command in my
/etc/rc (except for an exit 0), and from the moment I enter my login in xdm,
it very often coredumps almost everything, until my /-partition is full. If,
on the other hand, I enable the console login and remove xdm from /etc/rc,
everything will work fine, even when I start xdm from the root shell!

Of course, works very good this kernel.

Anyone knows what happened to sd1? I've got a disk at SCSI adress 0, and one
at SCSI_1, but they turn into sd0 and sd2, just like on Keiths machine.

Bye, Paul.
