I've had this problem too, on my Quadra 605. The information about it is
somewhat buried in website. A defective LC040 CPU will cause this error.
Apologies for not having the link that mentions the chip revision code
that is defective, but it is possible to find from the ports page.
If you are having an LC040, it's reccomended to try to get a real 040,
since then you'll have an hardware FPU.

If it isn't an LC040, hopefully someone else will have an idea.


I will be switching my email addresses from @ferret.dyndns.org to
@mail.aom.geek on or after September 1, 2001, but not until after
Debian's servers include support. 'geek' is an OpenNIC TLD. See
http://www.opennic.unrated.net for details about adding OpenNIC
support to your computer, or ask your provider to add support to
their name servers.
