Hope this is the right place to post this:

Had 2 kernel panics:
assertion: p->p_numposixlocks == 0 in exit1

Prior to that I had several messages (Don't know if this is helpful or not)
Sep  5 23:52:56 mercury kernel: swap_pager: out of swap space
Sep  5 23:52:58 mercury kernel: swap_pager_getswapspace: failed
Sep  5 23:52:58 mercury kernel: pid 76579 (httpd), uid 80, was killed: out of swap space
Sep  5 23:53:05 mercury kernel: swap_pager: out of swap space

Thought it kind of odd, since I didn't have that many things running, the
machine wasn't thrashing or anything.

Second panic:

Debugger(c0524821,c05eaea0,c0511d95,cb262bf0,0) at Debugger+0x44
panic(c0511d95,c0523c57,c04f334f,cb262c98,cb258594) at panic+0xae
exit1(d,c02a7c21,cb262c50,c02a7c21,c0af8e80) at exit1+0x219

syscall2(2f,2f,2f,10,0) at syscall2+0x29d
Xint0x80_syscall() at Xint0x80_syscall+0x2a

The second panic, I did exactly this:

logged in using ssh.
su'd to root

started apache
mounted an nfs partition /usr/pkgsrc
(Can't recall if I started apache first or second)

Then in /usr/pkgsrc/mail/procmail

echo 'bmake package ; bmake install ; bmake distclean' | batch

A short time later it paniced. (probably when the above commands were

I'll try to go straight to nfs mounting and bmake to see if apache
was related in any way.

I set up dumpdev on the swap partition, however, I don't understand how
this could be useful to anyone? (I'd imagine no one wants 128M file
of my swap partition..)
