Yay! We're almost there! :-)
Two questions about what made it into the release:
* I submitted a bug report in /sys/arch/pmax/pmax/trap.c a couple
of weeks ago, and received an automated reply... but the fix
hadn't made it into -current as of a couple days ago. What's
up? Was the fix (simple fix, but eliminated a nasty panic...
moved an #endif a couple of lines up, so that a previously
unintialized variable had something in it) deemed harmful to
other machines (all I have to play around with is a DS3100) and
so not included?
* I installed Manuel Bouyer's shared library kit, and found that
it broke a lot of stuff :-/ Will it be merged into 1.2?
NetBSD's looking pretty good recently :-) My system's been up 8 days so far--
much better than the 1- or 2-day uptimes I was seeing a few months ago. The
crash 8 days ago was a panic: remrq, but unfortunately I couldn't look into
that very thoroughly because I didn't have a crash dump to work with. Any
expectations on when the MI scsi driver will go in, BTW?
