448 MB??? What kind of hardware are we talking about here?
My 4000/90 is maxed out at 128MB, and some of the machines that support
more physical memory aren't even supported by NetBSD. That's some nice
machine you have...
Welll, yes, i have to admit this is really a nice beast... ;-)
It's a 4000/705A with three MS690-DA and one MS690-CA memory boards. I
salvaged the memory boards from a local scrap-dump, literally. I have
never expected them to work, cleaning alone was a major issue. The rest
of the machine is from a local university - from the design and
marketing faculty! I have no idea what they needed a VAX for.
Last summer i finally found some time to clean and restore the machine.
I am right now running 5.0_BETA from around christmas, which seems
stable. Have to fetch -current now and try a fresh build then.
