I just did a fresh install of RC1+ onto my workstation machine and proceeded
to build X. A previous package install had installed the perl package.
Unfortunately, during the build of the X fonts, it stopped and said that
/usr/X11R6/bin/mkhtmlindex could not be found. Sure enough the file was
I decided to re-install RC1 with some changes that might make getting
core dumps easier. Now I get the acpi crash (previously reported)
before I can get a good start on the install.
Wouldn't it be a good idea to set up the ISOs to not use acpi so that
acpi bugs don't block installation?
This problem and the general 'console freeze' problem, and possibly
even the 'floppy doesn't work anymore' problem should be fixed. The
problem was with the ahc and ahd drivers corrupting the callout list
used to trigger timeouts in the kernel.
It's not the fact that I have an extra, unused on-board video

Thanks. I knew

Since it is just an ABI change it should work, without changing
It would give us a stable, multivendor ABI to work off of for the next

Just a thought.
Yes, moving to gcc32 is highly
Yes, moving to gcc32 is highly desirable for -current, otherwise we

Moving to GCC 3.2 will do us no good. The lifetime of the 3.2 release

I've also seen this while making ports. If I ^C while fetch is trying to
connect to the distfile site, it doesn't die. It might be that the mk.*

terminal input somehow.
