this weekend i've installed the 1.1_ALPHA-2 snapshot from, and i've to say it
works *very* well. There are a couple of small things that i'd like to
see changed before The Release, though:

- the sys.tar.gz seems to have re remains of a 'make obj' in it, but
  it's not complete. It's best to remove the existing obj-dirs and
  compile "in place":

  rm -fr /usr/src/sys/arch/amiga/obj
  rm -fr /usr/src/sys/lib/libkern/obj
  rm -fr /usr/obj
- mkdir /usr/src/sys/arch/amiga/compile - otherwise config complains
- regarding .../conf/GENERIC:
  * add 'pseudo-device ccd 4' for concatenated disks
  * mlhsc0 should be named 'MichaeL Hitch's own SCSI-board' or
    something, not HAcker-SCSI. Or did i miss something? :>
  * add a comment what's atzsc is good for: A2091.
- Has anyone checked out the Ram Disk device (-> rdconfig)?
- How about the status of MSDOSfs? As of 1.0 it was said to be broken
  due to little-endianesness. Is this still the case of can one use it
  (for whatever one wants to use it ;-)
- There seem to be some man-pages missing, namely for: gencat,
  genclass, install-sid, gspa, gspahoxtoc, nsquery, nstest, rd(4),
  videomode (amiga-specific) mailstats
- 'window' uses 'q's as seperators (expected '-' or something).

That's it, enought bitching. :)
Thanks for all the great work, folx!!!
