Re: NetBSD 5.1.1 release? ext2fs support?
My original post:
) I follow http://releng.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/builds.cgi , and I notice NetBSD
5,1,1 release was being built.
) Now I find NetBSD 5.1.1 on ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD .
) Question is whether this new release includes the update for Linux ext2fs
where inode size > 128.
) I know this update went into HEAD and netbsd-5 (stable branch), but didn't
find any reference to ext2 or ext2fs when I browsed the changes for NetBSD
5.1.1 release, using the browser search function on ext2.
) If this release lacks support for ext2fs with inode size 256, it would be a
downgrade for me!

I agree! Either netbsd-5 or HEAD, whichever works better.
I thought NetBSD 5.1.1 would not include the improved ext2fs support, but was
just making sure.
I assume critical bug fixes from 5.1 to 5.1.1 would also be in netbsd-5 (NetBSD
I intend to build from source, skipping xorg.src in favor of modular Xorg from
