Sorry : For some reason it did not make to sun-lamp the first time.

>Well, I successfully booted with the netbsd-073194 kernael on my IIci. I

>used the new dt that goes along with this new kernel. And it worked very
>well. The Command-V for paste, and command-F for font changes, command-O
>for another virtual terminal, all works very well. I also noticed no key
>repeats. Is this temporary? The key repeat is kind of nice in dt. The July
>11 kernel had it and it worked well.
>Also I used slip connection without problem. I used as a slip host as well
>as a slip client, without any problems. The network options work fine. I

>Next, I recompiled ps. It still does not work, Gives procsize mismatch. I

>But I had problems with copying large binaries, likr lib.tar.gz (1.2MB)
>from mac side. I copied all the bytes. But I could not unzip it. I then

>I had problems with files, I went to the macside. And they were OK. I could

>But I had no problem with smaller binary files (less than 100 K ). Once
>again, hfs is a convenience, not a necessasity, so no big deal. This is FYI
>Thanks once again for all your efforts.
