So, I guess i'm really pretty fucked up now.
I just switched includes to -current in order to test-build a kernel.
Worked fine up to eisa_machdep.c. What the Hell is going on?
There is a configuration file for SUN_LAMP, apparently an EISA-Box,
but this seems to be completely untested.
Noone running -current on EISA?
It really hurts me, for I have now multiple Problems:
I have accidently compiled my backup-software with new includes and old
libs and kernel. Now I cannot restore data. My fault.
I cannot boot from floppy, because the floppy isn't bootable
I cannot upgrade to -current because noone seems to be able to supply at least
a minimal eisa_machdep.h.
So, in short, how long am I to wait until the one-time definite "buy this if
you want more than 16 MB RAM" is supported again?
Tragbar ist, was nicht herunterfaellt.
