I never saw an answer to this question, did I miss anything? The reason
I'm asking is that I'm trying to update the FAQ to version 1.2 of NetBSD.
I tried installing (from scratch) using the Oct-23 files in
-r--r--r-- 1 root ftp 262144 okt 23 18:42 tk50-file1-12
-r--r--r-- 1 root ftp 2097152 okt 23 18:42 tk50-file2-12
and get _exactly_ the same problems as Thomas. I see from his screendump
that the Oct-23 1.2 files include the same 1.2_Alpha kernel as the
June-30 files does. Could this be caused by a bug in the kernel?
My hardware is a uVAX II with 9 MB RAM which has been running NetBSD/VAX
1.1 fine (except from the occasional "page not in pmap" crash) up until
