make release revisited

Ok,

First, I've decided to stick to 3.0 until 3.1 is made stable.

After diggin through, reading, taking advice, and re-reading, I've almost 
got this licked (I think.).. the make release bit gets through the whole 
base os build, and part of the way through the boot disk/cdrom30.fs stuff.

But, after going through this entire process, I end up with the build 
barfing at the end with this:
NOTE: The first bit is good, showing that the cdrom30.fs was created 
succesfully (YAY!), but then fails on the attempt to create the 
floppies/ramdisk.

Sounds like you are using BootEasy from the OpenBSD FTP site or
CDROM.  The problem is, the program is only 512 bytes in size, so its
configuration options are about zero, and the program predates most OS
file system types currently in use (hense, the '???'s)...

Your options are:
1) Learn to enjoy the strange and cryptic messages.
2) Use the source, make changes (they are simple) and reassemble
(using Borland TASM, if I recall properly).
3) Use the .LST file, and hack the binary directly
4) Use a different boot loader.
5) re-evaluate option 1.  It ain't that bad.  It might keep people
from messing with your computer. 8-)

Nick.

Ultra-133 controller and CD-ROM

Alexander, (and misc <at> )

Thanks so much for your work on the Promise chipset! It works great, and I'm
using my Maxtor Ultra-133 controller exclusively in my file server now.
However, I have one question about using it with an ATAPI CD-ROM drive --
the controller's BIOS recognizes the drive, but OpenBSD freezes at when
apparently trying to "probe" the drive. Below is a normal dmesg, without the
CD drive attached, but when I plug the CD-ROM drive in, after the line:

	wd0(pciide1:0:0): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 5

I see the following:

	atapiscsi0 at pciide1 channel 1 drive 0
	scsibus0 at atapiscsi0: 2 targets
	probe(

and it freezes at that point -- any ideas? dmesg below:

$ cat dmesg

I imagine there are a lot of silent subscribers who use windows as little as
possible, and forget (or are too cheap) to update their virus definitions
files. I wold almost like to be in that group myself.

named skipped from 4.9 to 8.0.  Where are you getting 5?

Hello,

Did you try Gag 4.0.1 ?  It is pretty easy to use.

Re: Limit incoming traffic

well i'm not an expert, but if altq can't limit incoming traffic, why
don't you try to limit outgoing traffic on the ethernet interface?
your leecher will get less packets, will send less ack and the site (from where are downloading) will give
them less bandwitdth.

i suppose :)

rdate/reboot question

Greetings:

I have the following line in my cron file:
0  3 *  *  *  /usr/sbin/rdate -s ns.arc.nasa.gov

Today I got a failure message:
rdate: ns.arc.nasa.gov: Unknown host

I ran `/usr/sbin/rdate -s ns.arc.nasa.gov` again manually and no 
problem; I assume ns.arc.nasa.gov was temporarily down.  However, right 
after rdate failed my machine rebooted:

[root:/lou]$ last

Can anyone suggest why this might be?

altqstat bit rates to low

When running altqstat the measured bit rates are way to low. E.g. when
fetching a large file by http, wget reports 398.49 KB/s on average
(Telenordia/Sollentuna Energi fibre to KTH) while altqstat reports 70-80Kbps.
I'm running OpenBSD 3.1 on a Sparc 5 70 MHz as a firewall at home. The
tests are done with hme0 as inside interface, natting my small home net.

My altq.conf

interface le0 bandwidth 10M hfsc
class hfsc le0 def_class root pshare 10 default grate 128k
class hfsc le0 inter root pshare 50 grate 512k
