I am the one who had written the articel about NetBSD-1.0 being late.
So I first want to appologize (sp?) if someone think that my words
are not well taken.
Second I want to say thank you to Brian Moore who had build some
NetBSD-1.0-Beta floppies. They work fine; i.e I am just working
with 'his' system.
There are only three minor problems wich take some of my time:
- There may be a note in the INSTALL document what to do if
someone wants to have the system on the whole disk; you
have to give all cylinder (excluding the swap space)
to the install-script the first time it ask how big an
area had to be.
- The /tmp and the /var/tmp/vi.recover directories are
writable for root only. I had to change the modes to
start vi as an user.
- I have to change the /etc/rc and/or /etc/netstart files
to get my X running. Otherwise it didn't find 'sam:0'.
Even a 'ping sam' did fail. I think that that faeture
should be enabled because the majority of NetBSD user did
use X. (but I may be wrong).
But it may be that I have done something else wrong.
Nevertheless I have a running NetBSD-1.0-Beta. Well done.
P.S. I also want to say thank you to all other people who
had brought NetBSD to us.
