A while back, chopps sent a note either here or in comp.unix.amiga to the
effect that he was reworking all device drivers, so expect major changes.
This comes at a time when the main NetBSD people are cutting over to

At that time, he implied that kernel sources were not compilable, really.
I now ask: what condition are they in?

I am thinking of re-installing NetBSD from scratch once the 4.4-Lite
cutover has completed.  That way, I can reduce the size of the AmigaOS
partition from 100M to 20M and put the savings on the BSD side.

In the meantime, how useful is the "latest SUP" (assuming I take one
tonight) and do I need to get new binaries (if they exist)?
