Re: postgre semaphores

Not sure what went wrong. After building my kernel it didn't come back
up after rebooting. When I used the serial cable I didn't see any
errors during the boot sequence.  I'll have to try and capture the
boot messages to post here unless there is something else I should
grab that would be more informative.

Sorry for the lag in my reply, I thought someone more informed would 
have posted with more to offer.

Did you get the errors captured yet?

If you hold down all 4 cursor buttons on the back at boot  you can boot 
into an alternate kernel /usr/games/.doug which will let you limp 
along, I think.  I've not tried it myself.  That kernel is on the /ext2 
partition.  There might be some limitations to working with it, I think 
I've read that this is the case, but you hopefully have a backup copy 
of the working real kernel that you can just cp back.

HTH.  Do share what you end up trying, I'm sure that (I at least :) 
will refer to it sometime in the future.

In fact a little googling just found this - I think from Andy, on one 
of the newsgroups:

I didn't look for the rest of the thread.  I've read that the limit is 
1 gig on the zipped file, or 2.5 when it unpacks.  Did you pass that 
with the new kernel?

And a better description of what to do with the /usr/games/.doug 
follows .  Anyway perhaps it does not exist by default, although I 
thought that I read that it was there.

NetBSD 2.0?

Just synched my -rnetbsd-2-0 source last night and made a kernel this
morning, and here's what it says:

NetBSD taz.andy.com 2.0 NetBSD 2.0 (TAZ9-2.0r) #0: Thu Dec  2 18:05:06
UTC 2004  root <at> taz.andy.com:/usr/src/sys/arch/cobalt/compile/TAZ9-2.0r
cobalt

No RC_X, no beta, no nothing. We're there I guess. I don't read all
the other lists so I'm probably stating something that isn't unknown.
I'll have to go read the other lists to see whats up.

2.0 is tagged, the release is being built now - nothing is done much less 
announced yet. please stay tuned, and watch netbsd-announce <at>  and/or 
www.netbsd.org.

Maybe you want to coordinate this with Dennis Chernoivanov 
(cdi <at> NetBSD.org). I think he wanted to do something in that area too, and 
if you can e.g. come up with a "restore-CD" package for pkgsrc, that would 
be very cool. (I talked to Dennis about this at EuroBSDCon, and it's 
probably not likely to get such a restore CD built from /usr/src).

Cool, I'll get into netbsd-announce. Once the announcement is made,
time to start building some userlands and get working on a new cobalt
restore CD. Can't guarantee that I'm smart enough to make one, but
I'll see what I can do.

I never talked to Dennis, but I sort of got the feeling like he made
everything he did to create the CD as accessible as possible and just
let it go from there.

I haven't looked closely at the stuff yet, but knowing how a machine
boots, knowing how the install kernel works, etc, I can understand how
it's put together.

"restore-CD" for pkgsrc... Expand on that if you would... Would this
be some ability to build a restore CD for any platform based on a
pkgsrc entry? Like, maybe, passing in a directory which contains all
the NetBSD install tar files, and then some extra parameters to do
whatever, and then build an iso image?

If it was just for Cobalt, then I'd say maybe it's a little much. We
have most of what we need to build the CD already and just put it out.

smbfs

hey, question

i know smbfs works in linux, and im trying to install sharity light,
but i cant get it to work, even though i have a registration
(registered for a free student one, go student benefits!)

my ultimate goal is to map a network drive from my windows 2003 server
for use in a stats generation for dnetc, (the proxy is run there, cant
run it on my qube, but wanna run stats on it generated from the log
files)

i could make a script on my server that copied the log files to my
qube, but it would be cooler to do it directly via a mounted network
drive

any ideas would be great

DMA IDE with NetBSD cobalt

Hi,

Does NetBSD support DMA for IDE disks reliably?
I will get a Cube2 soon and I am thinking about trying
NetBSD.

BTW: I also have a Raq2 (it's not running NetBSD)
and it works quite happily without that little fan.
Just in case someone cares considering the "low noise"
thread I just read in the archives.
