Re: Now I'm a Macppc-netbsd users

Some news:
at first bad news
i have tried to build the kernel (at first the tool because the CONF
of 5.0 need the new version of conf program..) but during the build on
the terminal appear the gcc problem "out of memory".. so i wait for a
moment to build the kernel..
(i will wait the stable release...)
xfce4 has some video problem (slow refresh?)
I can't compile firefox 3 (problem with powerpc)

good news:
 I have resolved (with a pach that i have found on port-powerpc
mailing list) a problem with a library
i have put my cpu flags in mk.conf..

thx for all
