rc.d/ypserv needs ypbind?

Hi,

setting up a yp slave, I noticed that updates from the yp master fail with an

yppush: Local resource alloc failure

if ypbind is not running on the slave. Is this a known and/or 
intended fact? If yes, ypbind shoud be made a requirement in 
rc.d/ypserv.

A new approach to install CGD system. A suggestion.


Hello!

I have just created a CGD system on my new notebook, but somehow different
than proposed way in Chapter 13:
http://www.netbsd.org/docs/guide/en/chap-cgd.html

I have different approach for "13.3.1. Preparing the disk" section:

Lets assume you have an empty disk or you have two free *primary
partitions*.

1- Prepare 2 primary partitions. One of them should be around 10 GB and the
other maybe ie; 10 GB or even 100+ GB, up to you.

2- Install NetBSD 4 onto 1st primary partition. Do not create seperate
partitions, just only swap. 

3- Follow instructions shown in "13.3.2" and "13.3.3" to create CGD on 2nd
primary partition i have mentioned. Now create /tmp /swap /var /usr /home
inside CGD as you wish (using disklabel / newfs)

4- Once you finished reboot and "boot -s". 

5- Now, copy /usr /var /home on 1st primary partition to /usr2 /var2 /home2
on 1st primary partition (backing up)

6- Edit fstab, make sure netbsd partitions in CGD will be mounted to ie;
/usr3 /var3 /home3. Reboot.

NetBSD group in spanish language.

Hi Folks.

In the past months a friends a me, begin a Spanish
Wiki for translate current documents in english
language to spanish, and write new ones, the wiki is
running with litle traffic, but it is a good starting
point for having presence for NetBSD in Mexico and
Latin American where the people speak spanish.

Now, with the same interest, we begin a group for
communicating with the other NetBSD users into Google,
we think that is group can help to the newbie users in
this wonderful O.S.

The wiki address: 
http://wiki.netbsd.org.mx

The group adress:
http://groups.google.com/group/netbsd-mexico

I hope that others NetBSD users living in this area
can help this project, the main purpose is promote and
support NetBSD.

God Bless.

Any users in Portugal?


Hi lists,

I'd very much appreciate it to hear from BSD users in Portugal as I'm
relocating there. :)

Any response very much appreciated (please PM me directly).

Cheers,

Timo

Re: how to make ntpd listen only on ipv4

  Removing the aliases, e.g.,

    # /sbin/ifconfig fxp0 inet6 -alias fe80::202:b3ff:ff14:432e
    # /sbin/ifconfig lo0 inet6 -alias fe80::1
    # /sbin/ifconfig lo0 inet6 -alias ::1

and restarting the daemon(s) gets you part of the way there (cleans
up sockstat a bit); but yeah, there are still listeners on the
wildcard addr.

corresponding callout device?

I'm apparently not understanding callout devices well enough.

I would like to observe the NMEA sentence traffic generated by a USB
GPS device.  When attached to a 4.0_RC1 system, I see the following
messages on the console:

uhidev0: DeLorme Publishing DeLorme USB Earthmate, rev 1.00/0.01, addr
4, icleass 3/0
uhid0 at uhidev0: input=32, feature=5

In looking at the manpage for uhid(4), I'm not seeing information on
what is the corresponding device name which can be used with cu(1).
Any clarification anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Jim

No, that's not the problem :-)

uhid is about reading knobs, not about serial ports.  The earthmate
probably has several endpoints and one is probably serial.  So, the USB
code needs to figure this out and make the serial port available,
probably through ugensa.  We did that for a high-end GPS that had
serial-over-USB and was ugensa-compatible once we added the descriptor.

So, you might modify the USB code to not attach as uhid, and to use
ugensa, and see where you get with that.  The recent commit to exclude
APC UPSes from uhid would be helpful as an example.

I'd also look on the gpsd homepage and lists to see how they deal - I
think gpsd people use earthmates.  Or check out how OpenBSD deals with

Thanks for both of your replies.  Experimenting with [dt]ty[UY]0
didn't prove fruitful, but I will look into the references provided.
FWIW, I did get this to work with OpenBSD, but I will poke about &
look at NetBSD's USB code.

Again, thanks.
