Don't bother. 5.0 is broken enough that it don't boot at all on our

I just grabbed the latest 5.0 beta snapshot and it built the vax kernel
cleanly (posix build, using ubuntu 8.10 linux).
I was planning on patching it for the 730 and submitting patches; is
this the right place to post them?
I suppose building cleanly is not sufficient :-) I'll try and run it on
a simh 780 in a minute.
I believe it runs fine (ie. boots) on a simh 11/780. Unfortunately
that's not good enough, since I've tried it on the actual 8650 hardware.
But if simh is good enough for you...
However, the second problem I mention is something most people don't
even bother testing. That is - build natively. Or do any kind of
extensive load tests. Since then the system just hangs after some time.
It's a bug somewhere in the kernel, but it takes a little time to expose it.
Like I said, it took over a day on my 4000/90.
