I just built a new kernel(BETA1.0, GENERIC) from the 02-Oct-94 source from sun-lamp--I used gcc-2.4.5.
Everything went fine until I ran into an undefined size_t error.
Well I fixed that, and compiled with only a single warning during the cc
of kern/sys_process.c (in ptrace):
cast from pointer to integer of diff size.
Well I decided to ignore the warning for now and go ahead and test the new kernel.
First a little bit about my system:
Mac IIcx, 20MB ram, Sys7.1, Mode32 ON, 32Bit Addr on, VM off.
(boy is this thing slow compared to my 840av)
Also, I removed all the con1-con9 devices, and commented them out of /etc/ttys.
Here are some excerpts from the boot.
checking for core dump...
can't find device 46/0
Oct3 <time> mac-pal savecore: can't find device 46/0
standart daemons: update cron
Strarting network daemons: routed printer inetd
starting local daemons
mon oct 3 <time>
Shortly after this, I am able to login, enter a few commands, then the system
hangs. I sorta expected this to happen due to the compile warning, missing device, and because the kernel may or may not be happy with the 0.9 dist tools and libraries.
Q1: Was the compiler warning above important? and how do I fix it?
Q2: What is the device 46/0 that the kernel can't seem to find, and how do I fix it?
Q3: Any idea why the system hangs after a few minutes?
If I can get stable kernel builds, then I'd like to work on the ethernet card driver code.
