Compaq Prolinea 4/25s
I have a stack of these laying around and I have tried obsd installs on 4
of them. On all of them there is weirdness. obsd freezes up after a short
time on all of them, sometimes you can still ping the machine but can't
use the console or log in remotly or even use a simple network service
such as finger. This happens [the freezes] when I do certain things like
pkd_add 'name of large package'
The machine is still pingable 12 hours later but control never comes back.
The only thing in common between all these machines is the hard drive,
which might be the trouble, I suppose. It's a 406M HD and I don't have any
other HDs big enough to install on. :-( (I could try a minimal install on
a 120M drive I suppose)
The only other mention of this line of computers on this list that I can
find was someone mentioning they have one of these and obsd only sees
16M of 24M of RAM (same thing happens to me on one of the boxes)
If anyone can tip me off on how to get more debug info short of compiling
a new kernel since I doubt I could compile anything on there so I could
submit more info on this it'd be appreciated. (In my mind there should be
a kernel with verbose debugging facilities available for every port)
