Somebody had given a link to a site containing -current ISO images. On
the same site, I found the following files as below:
[14:36:48](csu96154@localhost)$ ncftp ftp://ftp.plathome.co.jp/pub/NetBSD/NetBS
NcFTP 3.0.0 beta 19 (June 11, 1999) by Mike Gleason.
ncftp ...-current/tar_files/src > ls
bin.tar.gz etc.tar.gz libexec.tar.gz top-level.tar.gz
config.tar.gz games.tar.gz regress.tar.gz usr.bin.tar.gz
crypto.tar.gz gnu.tar.gz sbin.tar.gz usr.sbin.tar.gz
dist.tar.gz include.tar.gz share.tar.gz
distrib.tar.gz lib.tar.gz sys.tar.gz
What are these supposed to be ? Source code for -current, or compiled
On the same site, I also found this link:
and it seems to contain things organized in the usual way (ie, with
subdirectories called binary/ installation/ etc ...). Would this be the
location of the -current snapshots then ?
One last thing: I also found this link:
but this file is around 370 MB. Ay reasons why the ISO image is so big,
while the rest don't seem to be so big ?
I suppose these questions were pretty stupid to ask as the contents of the
sites may vary from site to site ... but still, if anybody has worked on
-current, and knows a bit on what I can do, please help ...
PS: Or is it that the second link contains the binary, with which I
install -current, and then use the first link for all the sources etc; and
finally, the third link contains both together ? Just a thot.
