Default Strange disk messages in dmesg on OpenBSD 4.8/4.9 snapshot on a Sparcstation 20

I've been running OpenBSD on my Sun Sparcstation 20 for a couple of years now. It's the most stable and useful OS on this particular box.

I have had no problem up to OpenBSD 4.7, but when trying to install 4.8 and 4.9, I get this strange output in the dmesg about either the scsi disk controller and the hard drive and optical drive. When I run a dmesg, this is all I get (this is the content of dmesg.boot):

Code:

The system appears to run, but both the installation and boot of the system take much longer due to these messages cycling for so long.

I also couldn't get the installation sets off of the CD - I had to use FTP.

I've burned multiple CDs, and it's not the media. The messages persist on the running system. When I load and run OpenBSD 4.4 through 4.7, none of these messages appear. It's just 4.8 and the 4.9 snapshot I pulled a couple days ago.

Does anybody have an idea what this means?

Because we don't have really than many Sparc users, you could report this to the OpenBSD misc mailing list.

Please include in your message to misc the dmesg output of a OBSD 4.7 boot. For 4.8 or 4.9-current, you can extract the proper dmesg output from /var/log/messages.

Posting to sparc@ would be a better choice.

I would offer some assistance, but the only sparc I have is an Ultra5, which came with IDE only. Anything I could offer would be speculation at best. sparc@ really is your best bet.

It's the hard drive. I pulled the 35 GB Hitachi Ultrastar, popped in a 2 GB Seagate Barracuda, and OpenBSD 4.8's dmesg is fine. It must be something in the Hitachi drive that doesn't affect OpenBSD < 4.8. The rest of the SS20 is still fine with OpenBSD 4.8 (and presumably 4.9).

I'm going to install OpenBSD 4.7 and give myself (and eventually openbsd-misc) more time to figure this out.
