Maybe Im wishing REALLY hard that NetBSD will offer full support for
tadpole (and yes, I know, wishing does _nothing_) bu, are the develoeprs planning on
writing full support for the 3gx Tadpole? pcmcia, sound, X, etc?
UVM, wscons, packages, etc... would make life so much better=)
Im just interested in the state of that port.
