I took about 40 minutes last night debugging the dreaded 'invalid
release' SUP error while supping to 'sup.netbsd.org'. It appears
that someone smashed the following symlink:
If you set your hostbase temporarily to '/a/anon_ftp/pub', you
should be able to 'sup'. I got a clean sup this morning using this
It should be noted that date/time stamps aren't being preserved
correctly on sup.netbsd.org so you'll probably end up recieving
every damn file AGAIN.
DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT A SYSADMIN ON sup.netbsd.org AND NOT AFFILATED
WITH THEIR OPERATION SO PLEASE DON'T FLAME ME.
