Re: Package binaries for NetBSD/sparc64 4.0_BETA2 / pkgsrc-2007Q2

Hi,

I've uploaded the files in the results of a bulk build done on
NetBSD/sparc64 4.0_BETA2 to

   ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/sparc64/4.0_2007Q2/

A total of 589MB of packages were uploaded.

The source tree this was built from was updated Jul 25.

I'll shortly re-update on the 2007Q2 branch and start a new round
of rebuilds.

As indicated above, the build was done on a machine running
NetBSD 4.0_BETA2, and most of these packages should be usable both
on 4.0_BETA2 and newer versions of the OS.

Regards,

- HÃ¥vard

Binary packages for 2007Q2 NetBSD-3.0/sparc64 available

Hi, 

The results of a pkgsrc bulk build update of pkgsrc-2007Q2 on
NetBSD-3.0.2/sparc64 have been uploaded and the packages are now
available at:

  ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/sparc64/3.0_2007Q2

and its mirrors.

The packages were built from sources updated on July 2, 2007.  6274
packages were sucessfully built (totalling 6.1GB).

The packages were built on a machine running NetBSD 3.0.2 and should be
useable on any sparc64 machine running NetBSD 3.0.x or NetBSD 3.x.

Now that the pkgsrc-200671 and pkgsrc-2007Q2 packages are available, the
pkgsrc-2006Q4 NetBSD-3.0/sparc64 packages will be removed.

J

watchdog reset

Hi, I have Ultra 10 which used to work fine, but then started refusing 
to boot. I thought it was due to dead battery in nvram module, which is 
common for machines this old. I bought a new nvram module, set it to the 
previous host id, etc. I managed to boot the machine today a few times 
and then I started having the same problems. I doesn't boot, when I turn 
the power on and off repeatedly, sometimes it starts booting, but then I 
get the following on serial console before open boot diagnostic tests 
get a chance to complete:

Watchdog Reset

scrolling across the screen, and then if I turn power off and on, it 
doesn't even get that far, it just sits there.

Any idea what's going on here?

sounds like the hardware has died :-(

i had a u10 in use the last ~2 years that died about a month ago.
i came home after a weekend away to a console full of SIR resets
and other badness and a fan running as fast as it could.  power
cycling gave a machine that after 2 times wouldn't even turn on.

as far as I could remeber, U10s tend to have a crapy power supply
unit. At least there were several problems regarding power supply
units in a german sun message board.

I think they're bog standard ATX power supplies, I've seen the 6 pin 
extra connector on many PC power supplies and always wondered what 
they're good for until i saw an U10 mainboard ;)

have fun

this is for older PC's that needed extra power, basically.  this
connector has been removed in ATX v2.0 so replacing u10 psu's has
become significantly more difficult in the past year.

If you have a dead PSU that means you also have a connector. Grafting
an old connector onto a new power supply shouldn't be too hard if you
know the pinout and have some terminal blocks lying around. The machine
is already dead, the worst that can happen is that you also set it on
fire. :-)

I use a "Franken 5". (U5 build from a bare U5 board set and various
PeeCee parts.) It uses a generic ATX PSU. The extra connector on the
main board is not connected. It is working this way for years now.

interesting.  i tried some random (new antec, not crap) ATX PSU's
but it didn't help, but an older ATX 1.3 PSU did...
