OK, at least three of you want to play with it. There are a couple
of hitches so far...
1) I only have a 28.8 dialup connection, so you can't FTP it from
me directly. (Unless you guess when I'm up and what my dynamic
address of the moment is 8-) Jason Thorpe said he was working
on getting me access to the CVS tree and ftp.netbsd.org, but I
have not heard more than that in a couple of weeks. (I guess
we could all spam Jason... No, better not...)
2) It has yet to recompile itself completely. I've run make -k a
few times, but it's not quite there. I'm not sure if I should
resup or just hand out what I've got. Probably does not matter
too much. This IS -current after all.
3) I built everything with PMAP_NEW=yes and UVM=yes, so if you
don't want that stuff, you either need to let me know and wait
a few days/weeks for a rebuild, find another source for a
snapshot, or build one yourself.
Phil/Matthias/Ian/others-with-write-access, do you have someplace
I could put this and move to to ftp.netbsd.org for me?
Anyone know how long it takes from someone saying I'll start the
process tomorrow, until it's done?
BTW, I think I have postgresql running on my 532. I'll let you
know for sure when I rebuild a kernel with the SVR4 SHMEM stuff
turned on, or when I figure out how PostgreSQL initialized its
database without the SHMEM stuff.
