33 for NetBSD:
34 NetBSD 2.0 and above are required because of the lack of needed
35 signal APIs in NetBSD 1.6 and earlier.

38 OpenBSD 3.0 has stricter ulimit values, and/or enforces them more
39 strictly, than its predecessors. Therefore SBCL's initial mmap()
40 won't work unless you increase the limit on the data segment from
41 the OpenBSD defaults, e.g. with
42 ulimit -S -d 1000000
43 before you run SBCL. Otherwise SBCL fails with a message like
44 "ensure_space: failed to validate xxxxxxx bytes at yyyyy". (SBCL
45 is just allocating this huge address space, not actually using this
46 huge memory at this point. OpenBSD <3.0 had no problem with this,
47 but OpenBSD 3.0 is less hospitable.)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
