1) Perhaps, this is a silly question. I don't even have a sound card
here. All I want is to be able to hear the bell, when, for instance,
someone requests a talk on a passive xterm. But my kernel (this is
1.1), disables it, and I don't know how to get it back. Ok, since I am
at it, let me ask more - can I play some .au files (in some weird way
maybe) without a sound card? If yes, how to do it under 1.1? I have a
kernel source, so if I need to config smth. in, I can do that.
Oh, I should of course mention that this is Gateway 2000 Intel 486,
33MHz. This thing has 20mb memory, ~350M harddrive (although this is
2) This computer is not my own - it belongs to school, that's why I
maybe vague at times (I don't open it too often). But when it boots,
BIOS reports 20Mb of memory. NetBSD gives the following three boot
messages, which I am a little bit concerned about:
Apr 28 20:46:20 zhivago /netbsd: real mem = 20578304
Apr 28 20:46:20 zhivago /netbsd: avail mem = 17375232
Apr 28 20:46:20 zhivago /netbsd: using 276 buffers containing 1130496
bytes of memory.
Which one refers to the physical memory that NetBSD uses? Probably,
the third is vm or whatever, so I'm not concerned, but the second
message throws me off. Does it mean that NetBSD doesn't see 3mb of my
Any help will be appreciated.
