I would like to add my voice to the chorus asking for
/src/sys/arch/m68k/m68k/db_trace.c 1.24 to be pulled up ASAP
as I suspect there is a panic MMU/UVM problem in the m68k
ports; my Amiga system also pukes in the same area as the sun3(?) and
Next ports do; somewhere in the pool code I suspect, but the ddb
backtrace is whacked. B^(.
Also, why is there a fundemental dependancy on the GNU info system
to bootstrap NetBSD 1.4?
I found it rather irking, especially since I had an earlier version
of GNU info installed in /usr/local/bin already, when
I tried to start the build from 1.3.3 -> 1.4 and the makeinfo stuff
brought it to a grinding halt.
I've been able to build new versions of NetBSD/Amiga from the old
since 0.9 days or so and I found the requirement for GNU info just to
The suspected pool panic has stopped the process for now but I'd still
would like to know why the build process for BSD now has an extra GNU
dependancy that it doesn't REALLY need... B^(. Can we add a
MKINFO=no or something to the basic bootstrap to forego the need for
info during initial bootstrapping?
