Hi All !

At least there is some progress upgrading from 0.9 to current. I was able to
compile almost everything (if I remeber correctly only games/fortunes didn't
compile). I then installed everything. Worked. I copied my old config file and
compiled a new kernel and (after removing some psuedo-devices from the config
file - thanks Jim) the only errro left is :
pmap.o: Undefined symbol _pmap_steal_memory from text segment
I checked pmap.c and there is a piece of code that looks like
#if NISA > 0
	isaphysmem = pmap_steal_memory(DMA_BOUNCE * NBPG);
I have an EISA machine with 16MB of memory, do I need this statement, where is
pmap_steal_memory defined (or has pmap.c been changed recently - after 93/12/30)
When I just comment the statement out, I am able to get a kernel, but when I try
to boot with this new kernel my machine immediately crashes (after the output
about .bss). There has been  a discussion about the new booter, do I need to
install the new booter to boot a current kernel ?

Any hints appreciated.
