The 1.3.2 release of NetBSD/alpha is available now, with
NetBSD/alpha binary sets and other alpha-specific release
engineering provided by Chris Demetriou (!) himself.
In the 1.3.2 release sets, the toolchain sources are
separated out as usual but the binaries are in the comp.tgz
set and install into the usual locations, mostly into
IF YOU ARE RUNNING ONE OF THE 199804XX BINARY SNAPHOTS:
You should think twice before loading the release. NetBSD
1.3.2 is really NetBSD 1.3 with some selected bug fixes
added, so you will be reverting the kernel and anything
compiled under the snapshot will probably not run under a
1.3 kernel and will need to be rebuilt from source.
However, 1.3.2 has a complete X build and so you might want
to load the x*.tgz sets. Also, the installation instructions
in the 1.3.2 release apply to the release and the snapshots.
(As usual, this means X clients and programming tools; only
the Multia TGA is supported as a server.)
IF YOU WANT A CD:
Guess what? There is going to be a NetBSD 1.3.2 CD, eta, 2 weeks.
