yahoo! another z50 NetBSD user!
i'll leave the technical answers to the maintainers, but i rolled greg's
kernel onto my 1.5.1 file system... i did have to create devices to
support audio, but that's the only issue i can recall...
obviously the best is to install the latest and greatest, but i haven't
read the changelog or release notes on whether or not greg's z50-specific
features have been rolled in... (just the trackpoint?)
right now, i'm happy with a stable system, and i figure if it ain't broke,
don't fix it! (OK, OK, i know one should update for security, but i'm only
using the release on a laptop that generally stands alone, dials up, or is
behind a NetFilter moat...)
all my devices (wired/wireless NICs, serial I/O, CF, PCMCIA SCSI, etc.)
all work fine...
