I'm trying to get FreeBSD 5.2.1 going on an older thinkpad laptop. The install went smoothly from floppy and 5.2.1-RELEASE CD. Now I'm trying to do an installkernel and installworld from an NFS mount on my main machine.
I did the buildworld and buildkernel on the faster machine, with these make flags on the command line: MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/usr/obj/586 KERNCONF=TP365XD CPUTYPE=i586 When I try to do an installkernel and/or installworld, install crashes with signal 4. If I'm not mistaken, signal 4 is an illegal instruction. What could be going on here? I've used this procedure on other (somewhat newer) 586-class machines without problems. Is this a bug, am I doing something wrong, or is the CPU in this laptop not fully 586-compatible? Dmesg (from the currently installed GENERIC kernel) says: CPU: Pentium/P54C (119.78-MHz 586-class CPU) Should I try CPUTYPE=i486? What else can I do to track this down? Any input appreciated. Please CC me.
