The ftp server at ooopackages.good-day.net appears to be having
intermittent problems -- it was not working properly for a while, then
it was working for a few days, and at the moment it appears to be not
working again.

I was able to download the source from there yesterday or the day
before -- it does build nicely (though it takes an astonishly long
time -- I guess that's well known).

There are other locations to get the source code -- the name of the
file is different, but the contents appear to be the same. However (as
of a couple of days ago) I could only find m104 elsewhere, not m105.

Thanks.  I finally found somewhere that has it, and I'm downloading it
now.

HP DL360-P4 slow network writes

Hi,

I have been using HP DL360-G3 and G4 servers for various tasks and have
found that latest batch to have a problem with network writes being VERY
slow.  Reads are fine.  Local reads/writes are fine.  It's just network
writes that are hurting me.

I have tried installing Intel server NICs in the systems with no
difference.  I have tried going to different switches with no
difference.  I have tried changing the Cat5 cables with no differences.

I installed RedHat on the same exact box and did not have the same slow
write speeds.

Does anybody have any thoughts on this?

Thanks in advance.

-Kent-

This is all I have on my system (its from www.freebsd.org):
_________________________________________
SGI XFS port for FreeBSD

Contact: Alexander Kabaev <kan <at> FreeBSD.org>
Contact: Russell Cattelan <cattelan <at> thebarn.com>

Not much has changed since last report was submitted. The read-only access XFS 
volumes is quite stable now. The work is underway to rewrite xfs_buf layer to 
minimize local changes intrusiveness. Initial attempt to make XFS code to 
compile and run on amd64 is in progress too.

We really need a care-taker for our userland tools.

 Well having just solved what I thought was a weird problem using ncftp which 
IO eventually tracked down to a dns problem - can I with little solid 
justication suggest you carefully check out your dns servers -- see which one 
are working really well and whether you have any unexpected delays.

Its the only thing I can think of off the top of my head

Well depends upon what order your dns servers are in the list - if you 
happened to have a duff dns being accessed first on yr freebsd box it might 
slow stuff down - if you can be certain they were in the same order on the 
redhat that would rule out dns as a cause. However I have usually not paid 
too much attention to what order they appear..now I will :-)

I have am setting up a multi-boot system and it looks like I will have
to put linux on a logical partition.  will boot0 recoginze the logical
