Maybe it's worth putting a note up in the news section here:
Tuomo, would you be willing to write a few words on what has
been fixed for the NetBSD/atari page? :)
Would you say at this point the recommended way to install would
be to copy the kernel & sets to a CD or HD and then boot/install
I guess it's most straightforward way of installation now. Only glitch when
one is installing kernel & sets from Gemdos drive is that kernel filenames
exceed Gemdos 8 + 3 limitation (maybe we should think about renaming them ?).
Does it just do a simple truncate?
netbsd-ATARITT.gz -> netbsd-A.gz
netbsd-BOOT.gz -> netbsd-B.gz
netbsd-BOOTX.gz -> netbsd-B.gz (conflict!)
netbsd-FALCON.gz -> netbsd-F.gz
netbsd-HADES.gz -> netbsd-H.gz
netbsd-MILAN-ISAIDE.gz -> netbsd-M.gz
netbsd-MILAN-PCIIDE.gz -> netbsd-M.gz (conflict!)
All of the other ports call the kernels in binary/kernel
'netbsd-*.gz' so it would be nice to be consistent.
I suppose a cheap way to help it would be to rename them
so they truncate to unique names, say:
BOOTX -> XBOOT
MILAN-PCIIDE -> MILAN
MILAN->ISAIDE -> ISAIDE-MILAN
Not ideal, but a little better.
Hmm, does anyone actually have a Milan or Hades to test? :)
