Before you go looking, the code is in -current, not 5.2.1, but it will work with 5.2.1 if you install it all correctly. -Bill -- ============================================================================= -Bill Paul (510) 749-2329 | Senior Engineer, Master of Unix-Fu [EMAIL PROTECTED] | Wind River Systems ============================================================================= <adamw> you're just BEGGING to face the moose ============================================================================= _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
