``Treiber schreiben'' in English

Hi,

I have translated Jochen Kunz' ``NetBSD Device Driver Writing for
Beginners'' into English.  Or at least, I've finished my first attempt
to do so.  Given that I hardly know anything about writing a drive, I
might have gotten some translations wrong, but at least now anybody who
speaks english should be able to correct me given the context.

And of course it always helps having some more German-accustomed eyes
look through both the original and the english version to improve the
translation.

Anyway, you can download an english version from

http://www.netmeister.org/tmp/treiber_schreiben.ps
http://www.netmeister.org/tmp/treiber_schreiben.pdf
http://www.netmeister.org/tmp/NetBSD-treiber_schreiben-1.0.1e.tar.gz

If you have corrections, please send me a diff against the .tex sources.
After several iterations, we hopefully will have a decent english
version, which I intend to put online (with Jochen's permission, of
course) on our website.

Thanks,
-Jan

I think every translator is welcome;). Maybe you can try to contact Julio
Merino (jmmv at hispabsd dot org), he can probably tell you who (if
anybody) is working on it.

Re: Wireless chapter?

Hi all,

An update about the wireless chapter, it seems most of the wiconfig
functionality has been moved to ifconfig in NetBSD-Current, as reported
over here: http://mail-index.netbsd.org/current-users/2002/11/16/0011.html
I have no wireless systems running NetBSD-Current, so I can't document
wireless networking under NetBSD 2.0. Maybe somebody else could have
a look at it?

With kind regards,
Daniel de Kok

Small chap-pack diff

Hi all,

While translating chap-pack I noticed a few small "errors":

* The package collection now contains more than 3500 packages (instead of
more than 1000).
* URL's should be marked as <ulink>, not <filename>. Unlink creates a
usable link in HTML;).
* The part about distfiles is a bit unclear, it seems to suppose that the
reader knows what a distfile is.
* Addnerd is used as an example, but it is removed from the pkgsrc
collection. So, I replaced it with cdrecord.

I have attached a diff.

With kind regards,
Daniel de Kok

Re: Small chap-pack diff


Thanks! I did a real quick check of the markup
(quite possible I missed something) and committed
it,

quote fix diff

Hi all,

I have tried to replace all ""'s in normal text with <quote></quote> tags,
which is the appropiate way to generate quotes. I hope I haven't missed
something ;). Besides that there was still a reference to enabling
consoles on NetBSD 1.4 in chap-cons, which has already been removed from
chap-boot a while ago.

With kind regards,
Daniel de Kok

chap-net splitup?

Hi all,

chap-net is getting quite long, which doesn't really make it easy for
readers to find certain information (especially because topics aren't
sect1'ed). Would it not be better to split chap-net into for example:

* TCP/IP Networking
* IP Filter (only IPNAT is covered by chap-net, other parts still need to
  be written)
* NFS
* IPv6 (expanded with other IPv6 documentation, besides 6to4
  documentation)

Or maybe "sect1 the topics", making them show up in the table of contents?

With kind regards,
Daniel de Kok

Thanks a bunch!

I just committed these changes, as Jason is currently at BSDcon.

cgd chapter?

Hi all,

At the moment I am experimenting with cgd, is somebody already writing a
chapter about cgd? If not, I would like to write it, if it is useful (I
do think so;).

Daniel de Kok
