NetBSD alpha.prez.net 1.5W NetBSD 1.5W (prez) #18: Wed Jul 11 22:57:53 EDT 2001
I had stopped building -current when I was bitten by a kernel bug in
early July which gave me libc problems & signal 11 issues. I had been
awaiting the next snapshot to ensure that I had a good working
"everything" before trying to build again.
Anyone else wonder how port-mac68k can make snapshots weekly on
ancient 68040 hardware, while the big & mighty Alphas can only manage
to do it about every 6 months?
I would think that my 1.5W should have the patches that B. James
suggested. In a quick check, though, my sources don't (I hadn't even
been doing my anoncvs updates. I'm going to download everything from
the July snapshot, install it all, and download a -current source.
I'll make a kernel from that & see if I fare better.
I'll post an update if it works, or new errors if it doesn't ;-)
Thanks for your time,
