    Ok, it's definitely DargonFly, then.  I have committed a number of fixes
    to the slab allocator, could you retest?


:This is a follow up.  I have wiped the machine in question clean and started
:from freebsd 4.8.  The machine works extremely well in 4.8.  I have updated the
:machine to freebsd 4.8-p10, and the machine continues to work fine.  If I
:install a dragonfly kernel and reboot to do 'make installworld' the machine
:will hard reboot immediately and the world will not be installed (no panic
:either, even with ddb).  This is both with and without the slab allocator.  The
:dragonfly sources are from 9/24.
:Has anyone tried running dragonfly on a pentium that does not have mmx?
:I'm waiting for matt's patches to the slab allocator at which point I will test
