Yup. GCC lateer than 2.4.5 (or maybe it's 2.5.0 and higher or
something) doesn't work on NetBSD kernels becuase of differences in the
exact nature of certain functions invloving the copying of memory. I
think it's memcopy ond bcopy or something. In any case, use the 'cc'
that came with the distribution for your kernel - hich I think is 2.4.5.

You using the same kernel image on the Amiga and NetBSD side?
If that's not the problem, 'make clean' and recompile. Then see if the

It works as intended. It is read only, and will only mount as read
only, even if you specify otherwise. It also will not read 3.x directory
cached or International AmigaDos partitions.
Don't try to write to your NetBSD partitions ith BFFS, either (BFFS 1.3
will let you trash the partition - it was made for the NetBSD ufs
implementation from pre-0.9). BFFS 1.4 does a software write protection.
