I just did an FTP install of 4.5-RELEASE onto an AlphaStation 400 4/233. The
install went smoothly (save for the DEC network card causing the machine to
hang while waiting for SCSI devices to settle) but now I am trying to get it
into a more usable state.

I grabbed the cvsup-without-gui Alpha package and pkg_added it and attempted to
use cvsup to update ports, but it core dumps:

npaufler@endor:/usr/local/etc> sudo cvsup ports-supfile

*** runtime error:
*** Value out of range
*** file
line 63

use option @M3stackdump to get a stack trace
Abort trap (core dumped)

I've tried installing a few variant packages (cvsup.tgz, some versions from
older -releases) but they all crash in the same manner.

Running it with the stack dump enabled as suggested gives the following:


endor:/usr/local/etc> sudo cvsup @M3stackdump ports-supfile

*** runtime error:
*** Value out of range
*** file
line 63

Install FreeBSD 4.5-RELEASE on an AlphaStation 400 4/233.
Install the cvsup (or cvsup-without-gui) package built for Alpha.
Try and cvsup using one of the supplied ports-supfile or stable-supfile.

cvsup will then core dump.
