The Sparc2 watchdog reset patch (and many others) are available
on in the directory /sun-patches.

Thanks to a quick response from Edward Vielmetti <>.

I installed the patch and don't see the problem anymore.

>We have a Sparc2 running 4.1.1 that is having the watchdog

>Window underflow
>Watchdog reset
>> (boot prompt)

>>From perusing the various ftp archives the following
