I have just uploaded a new snapshot to ftp.uni-regensburg.de. I have taken a
few extra steps to make sure that this snapshot has ALL the binaries.
I am doing a diff on (/bin, /dev, /sbin, /usr/lib, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin,
/usr/libexec) so I'll know when something is missing.
I am truely sorry that the last snapshot was missing the /usr/src/gnu part of
the tree. The /usr/src/gnu stuff was on my main partition but somehow didn't
make it to clean partition I use to make my snapshot.
I will be uploading the install miniroot file system, also.
here is the README File.
Uploader: Robert Leland firstname.lastname@example.org
Descr: NetBSD 1.1 Alpha (11 November 1995) snapshot for the Amiga
Keywords: NetBSD Amiga Unix snapshot 1.1 ALPHA-2 BSD
This is a snapshot from Nov 11 22:40 sup from sup.netbsd.org.
This alpha release has been check to make sure
that all binaries are present and compiled,
UNLIKE the last release(SORRY!)
There are four GENERIC kernels included:
netbsd-retina-speed-hack.gz - Build with the RETINA_SPEED_HACK option
netbsd.gz The standard GENERIC kernel
netbsd-lev6.gz With LEVEL6 Interrupt
handling to prevent silo overflows when using
ppp or slip. (w/o RETINA_SPEED_HACK)
netbsd-lev6-ret-speed-hack.gz The GENERIC kernel built with:
level 6 interrupt for no silo overflows.
If you have a retina card and a 040 based machine I am not sure
any of the kernels will work for you. If you have an 030 machine then
use the netbsd-retina-speed-hack kernel.
If upgrading from a release older than June, install
the netbsd-generic kernel first or most of your dynamically
linked executables ie (/usr/bin, /usr/sbin, /usr/libexec)
will not work with an old kernel. The new kernel will work
with most of the old binaries.
As always use tar --unlink -xzvpf <tarfile>
when unpacking the binaries.
This code does NOT contain DES code to the best
of my knowledge.
