I was just going to brag about an uptime of 58 days on my uVAX II when
disaster struck:

panic: uba zero uentry
Stopped at         0x8008093d:    add12   $4, r8
db> c
syncing disks... 

and then nothing. I had to press the reset-button to get to the monitor

Anyone know what could cause this? I'm running a self-compiled 1.2
release kernel.

The reason I was going to brag about the uptime was because I was going
to declare NetBSD/VAX ready for production use. I have installed the
Apache web server on my VAX and copied the FAQ pages to it. I was going
to announce that it seemed only proper that the NetBSD/VAX FAQ pages
were hosted on a VAX running NetBSD, but I think I'll wait a bit before
I make the move "official" (have to see if that crash was a freak
accident or what...)

Anyway, if you want to check them out or check out the speed of Apache
on a 9MB uVAX II, point your browser at:

Maybe it would be a good idea if you all browsed the pages a couple of
times/day so I could get the machine stress-tested ;-)
