Hi, I've just installed the DP1 snapshot on my laptop, and, so far, I'm very happy with it. I haven't experienced a single hang or problem with the system, even though my kernel is compiled without WITNESS and INVARIANTS. I've stress tested the system by building all software using ports, testing the background fsck and so on. Everything runs fine. The only two things that prevented this from being a perfect experience were (and not really the system's fault)
- Somehow XF4.x that one can install from sysinstall now doesn't like the 8bit display from this computer, and all the window managers I installed had problems allocating colours with it (xfce, fvwm-themes, fluxbox). Installing 3.3.6 solved the problem. - If possible, I think it would be nice if a newcard.flp floppy image was included in future snapshots and maybe in the 5.0-R cdrom and ftp files, a la NetBSD's laptop floppy images, so users of CARDBUS nics can do a net install without having to use a PCCARD device first. As I said, other than these two minor giltches, a very smooth install. Kudos to all that work on this.
