Uh, oh! I installed it immediately prior to reading this post. I
guess I won't reboot. Heh, looks like it's immediate:
/usr/pkg/bin/colorls: Exec format error. Wrong Architecture.
OK, no prob...
alpha# unalias ls
alpha# alias ls ls -la
alpha# cp /usr/obj/libexec/ld.elf_so/ld.elf_so /usr/libexec/
alpha# cd ~
alpha# source .cshrc
/usr/bin/mesg: Exec format error. Wrong Architecture.
/usr/bin/id: Exec format error. Wrong Architecture.
Hmmmm, this sux :P I figured that "If you are a NetBSD-current user
of the Alpha port, PLEASE INSTALL THIS NEW DYNAMIC LINKER AS SOON AS
POSSIBLE." meant install this linker as soon as possible ;-).
I tried going into /usr/src/libexec/ld.elf_so & doing "make install"
& "install"...both gave bad arch.
Ahhhhh....ls /usr/libexec/ld.elf_so provides -rw-r--r--...umask...
cp -p /usr/obj/libexec/ld.elf_so/ld.elf_so /usr/libexec/
no target to make
Hehehe, I love it when a plan comes together :-)
BTW... Jason recently posted that because of the dramatic changes he
was working on that either he or Ross would be making a snapshot
soon, so I froze at a Dec 13th kernel (1.5Y) with older (Nov 20)
binaries. Will it be the build that you're doing with the new
toolchain that you'll be posting, Jason?
