NetBSD 5.1 NetBSD 5.1 (GENERIC) #0: builds%b6.netbsd.org@localhost:/fooooo etc
etc.. unfortunately virtualbox has no ability to cut and paste this information
and i don't have the patience to try to type it in
I've just completed a Ubuntu Server 11.04 install and then a NetBSD 5.1 one
I've used NetBSD in the distant past and i was pleasantly suprised to see how
much nicer the install is.
That said, please consider whether the following would be possible:
o Some way to easily tell what was installed in the initial installation. e.g
comp.tgz is not installed by default so no cvs to do anything.
o can a default shell be installed which has some tab completion and history ?
or even stty ^H erase ?
o it'd be really useful to have pkgsrc already setup and a one liner that said
something like 'to install software run this which gives you a list'
All i could think about for now. None of this is a big deal - just would be
nice to build on how smooth the install process has gotten to by a couple of
little things to make it so much more user friendly.
The alternative is of course to google/read documentation etc which i am doing
but it's a little sad that someone with basic unix knowledge can't get very far
in netbsd without having to do that rather than just poking at some commands -
lets face it, most of us want to go straight to the packages/applications
nowadays after the actual install goes smoothly.
