System: NetBSD corwin.home 1.4.1 NetBSD 1.4.1 (CORWIN) #17:
Tue Aug 10 17:36:22 CDT 1999 firstname.lastname@example.org:
(That's the last good kernel.)
Running binaries (net/netatalk package) built in March against
Netatalk has stopped working between August 10 (1.4.1)
and August 30 (latest release sup).
A Quadra 840AV, dual boot, and a Quadra630 running MacOS. All is fine:
afpd, papd, serve files + a ghostscript printer, from the 840AV for the
630, *except* with recent kernel. atalkd starts up without error, sets
up the routes the ordinary way (as evidenced by 'netstat -rf atalk'),
and starts up listeners as usual...
fredb-> netstat -f atalk

but 'nbprgstr corwin:Workstation; nbprgstr corwin:netatalk', the
next step in the rc.atalk script, fails with "cannot register
corwin:Workstation@*", "cannot register corwin:netatalk"; afpd and
papd subsequently fail likewise. Interestingly, if I enable AppleTalk
on the Quadr630 (in MacOS) "npblkup" sees it!

Tried deleting /usr/pkg/etc/atalkd.conf and letting atalkd rebuild it;
same thing (with different numbers) until I revert to the old kernel, then OK.
