Re: [7.0-BETA on RPI] Some corrections!

I've successfully installed NetBSD 7-Beta (2015-04-29) on the raspberry pi

that might need some attention (nothing major at the moment):

* While the instructions in <
https://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/evbarm/raspberry_pi/> are useful,
the "growing the root file-system" section states that it is "not required
with NetBSD -current after 2015-04-07"
might not be true because I had to follow the instructions in order to
expand the root slice.
(OR) I'm misunderstanding what the NetBSD-Current is. As stated above,
'uname -a' yields NetBSD 7.0-BETA.
I know the top 3 BSDs (inclusive) are different, but they seem to use the
same naming convention for their release engineering.
For instance, FreeBSD and OpenBSD use -Current for their upcoming
(currently under development) releases. So, does NetBSD
follow the same logic?

For NetBSD, -current means the top-of-HEAD development. This is quite different from 7.0-Beta, which was branched from HEAD some months ago. Since that time, limited fixes have been "pulled up" from HEAD to the branch.

I am unsure of whether or not the slice-size fix was pulled up; from your problem description, I would guess "not". :)
