I grabbed ragge's kernel, 'sup'ped the most recent tree. Did a 'make build'
and installed everyting..


All works well, except for:

nerdvax# ps -ax
ps: proc size mismatch (11856 total, 620 chunks)
nerdvax# kvm_mkdb
kvm_mkdb: /netbsd: _kernel_text symbol missing
nerdvax# uname -a
NetBSD 1.3F NetBSD 1.3F (GENERIC) #468: Fri Jun 12 10:17:32 CEST 1998     root@:/usr/src/sys/arch/vax/compile/GENERIC vax

Indeed.. /netbsd doesn't contain _kernel_text anymore..

Pretty weird, because libkvm and the 'ps' binary was cleanly built
(no leftover from older install)

This is on a KA650 (uVAX 3600) with 32 Mbyte. Pretty standard BA213 box.

My self-compiled kernels (with only KA650 support enabled) die while
booting with a 'not enough space in swap_map' or something similar.
Don't have the exact error here..

Any similar experiences?
