Thanks for question. I ran a quick check: cd /usr/src; # Apply my patches: # customise `pwd` # http://www.berklix.com/~jhs/bin/.csh/customise cd /sys/amd64/conf grep device [A-Z][A-Z][A-Z][A-Z].small | grep ed DUAL.small:device ed FILM.small:device ed KING.small:device ed LAPA.small:device ed LAPD.small:device ed LAPL.small:device ed LAPN.small:device ed LOFT.small:device ed MINI.small:device ed SCAN.small:device ed0 at isa? port 0x280 irq 15 iomem 0xd0000 iosiz 0x10000 SLIM.small:device ed SNOW.small:device ed0 at isa? port 0x280 irq 5 iomem 0xc8000 WIND.small:device ed My master config file is http://www.berklix.com/~jhs/src/bsd/fixes/FreeBSD/src/jhs/sys/amd64/conf/HOLZ (Its public but only for my convenience, not asking anyone to struggle with that!) None of those machines are newish, & some very old, some obsolete, some still very useful, eg host SCAN running 4.11 embedded ! http://berklix.com/scanjet/ I need to look more what I can scrap, but ed was extremely common once, inc for pcmcia, I bet loads of machine have embedded ed & ed0. If its a shortage of hardware is the problem let me know.
