pkgsrc/emulators/gxemul: Makefile PLIST distinfo
Update to 0.3.7
User-visible change between release 0.3.6.2 and 0.3.7 include:
o) The experimental PowerPC emulation mode is now working well enough
to allow NetBSD/prep 2.1 to be installed and run inside the emulator.
It is not 100% stable, and it is not optimized for performance yet,
but hopefully enough for simple experiments.
o) I finally took the time to implement a DEC 21143 NIC; this brings
network connectivity to NetBSD/cats. (The userland "NAT"-like
networking layer is still a bit buggy, and does not work with
everything. However, NetBSD/cats can now be installed via ftp.)
o) CD-ROM images can now in some cases be detected as ATAPI CD-ROMs
instead of IDE harddisks. It works for at least NetBSD, OpenBSD,
and Linux on CATS, and NetBSD on hpcmips.
Internal (code related) changes include:
o) Cleanup of the PCI and ISA bus frameworks; in practice this means
that more code can be shared between different emulated machine
models than before, and that adding new machine types will become
o) Dyntrans updates; 32-bit PowerPC mostly, but also many performance
related updates for ARM.
