Some general remarks:
First and most important: 1.2G is really an improvement over all the 1.2x
versions I had on my 3100, it works great!
Swapping via nfs now works for me (thanks for the vax-specific modifcations
and for swapctl!), there are still some minor problems, but in general it
BTW: On my machine the kernel is more stable if i remove/change the
"#if !defined(vax)" line in vm_glue.c, I've still no clue what's
happening there, but it seems to work...
You can avoid the nroff-hassle by "setenv NOMAN" before doing a build,
in that case the man-pages are not built and nroff is not used.
the nroff becomes stable if compiled without the "-O" flag, in my case
I just went into src/gnu/groff, did "make clean", "make CFLAGS=" and
"make install" and it worked.
After that I applied the patches for the last 2 days and did a complete
rebuild (after "setenv UPDATE" and "unsetenv NOMAN"). The result: it
completed without problems and the "time" command said:
58994.89 real 37384.87 user 13263.61 sys
The chflags problem is/was nfs-related, for me it works since a few
weeks now without problems. If you still have these problems, getting
-current should fix it. (BTW: "make build" is the thing you should use).
All in all: I'm rather happy now! Thanks to all who made it happen!
