I'm getting (seemingly) random crashes about once a day on a Sparc 10
with OpenBSD 2.7 installed. It doesn't drop to the debugger, and leaves
no panic messages that I've found. Symptoms are usually not waking up
from console screenblank, no response to ssh, nfs or pings. It had
crashed a twice under 2.5 which among other things prompted me to
upgrade. 2.6 wouldn't work because of a bug when running on a SM30.
I'm thinking possibly bad memory. Testing memory from the boot prompt
produces no errors, but also doesn't spin through the memory being tested
on screen as I'd expect. Any ideas? Diagnostics? Ways to at least
produce a corefile?
