Re: Using pkgin on NetBSD 8.0

Hello Greg,

what I am trying to do is to run a basic webserver on it. Of course it
is just playing around, but I want to see if I can host a simple
website on such an old machine in a secure manner.

I currently have 72 megs of RAM installed in this machine.

Right now I hope I figure out how to cross compile stuff for this platform.
