Package binaries for NetBSD/macppc 4.0 / pkgsrc-2011Q3

Hi,

I've uploaded the results of a build and then a rebuild of
pkgsrc-2011Q3 done on NetBSD/macppc 4.0 to

   ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/powerpc/4.0_2011Q3/

This tree now contains 11GB of packages for a total of 9580
packages.

The build was done with a source tree updated October 25 2011.

For the packages which are not architecture-specific (should be
the vast majority), these packages should also be usable on other
powerpc ports.

Regards,

- Håvard

MPC824x JTAG success story

Hi!

Some days ago I succeeded in using JTAG with a cheap and customized
ByteblasterMV cable and the open source software UrJTAG, to unbrick an
MPC8241 based Sandpoint NAS.

As many PowerPC CPUs use the same 16-pin JTAG/COP interface my article
might be interesting for others too, because it addresses common problems.

(Don't hesitate to tell me about any errors in the article. English is
not my native language and I'm not a hardware expert.)
