Hi! $ uname -a OpenBSD pc89225 2.8 GENERIC#336 i386 Installed from ftp://ftp.inet.no/ sept. 29th. Enabling softupdates on my machine makes the system freeze solid, and there's only a hard reset left ... I can find nothing in the logs indicating whats up, and I've just tried to reproduce it for the same reason. :-( All it took to crash the system was to try and do a `make install' of /usr/ports/graphics/pngcrush, but I've seen it take more work to accomplish. The system stopped for 3-8 sec., and after that it froze solid, I couldn't change virtual terminal anymore (and at no point could I get back to X). It happened right as the first line of compileroutput was spewed out. Generally it's high disk activity that triggers it. I run the system without softupdates enabled now, and it's running very stable, but I would sure like it running with softupdates. Are softupdates brokena? Has anyone experienced something similar? I've attached a gzipped dmesg bacause it might be hardwarespecific. Regards Morten -- UNIX, reach out and grep someone!
