Re: Installing -current

I'm failing to compile some of the more interesting packages with
NetBSD-4.0 .  It seems -current should come along with the PIC-fixed
compiler and shared libs enabled. How do I install that on a naked
SIMH VAX? I tried to find some binaries, but it seems all the snapshot
and daily directories don't contain any VAX packages?

        It looks like there is an issue building a -current kernel:

/home/builds/ab/HEAD/src/sys/dev/tc/asc_tcds.c:451:2: error: #error 
TURBOchannel only exists on DECs, folks...

        Interestingly that section has not changed since 2000

#if defined(__alpha__)
                        addr = (u_int32_t *)ALPHA_PHYS_TO_K0SEG(pa);
#elif defined(__mips__)
                        addr = (u_int32_t *)MIPS_PHYS_TO_KSEG1(pa);
#error TURBOchannel only exists on DECs, folks...

        So it looks likely that some change has caused that file to be
        included in the vax build.

        As a quick test you could:
        - Download and extract NetBSD current src - the tar.gz files from
        - comment out any line starting asc from
          sys/arch/vax/conf/GENERIC and sys/arch/vax/conf/INSTALL
        - Run './build.sh -m vax release' (should work on any NetBSD
          architectures and most other unix like systems, eg Linux etc)
