Difference between -1.0 and -1.0A??

Post by Dave Roeth » Tue, 07 Nov 1995 04:00:00



What is the diffence between NetBSD-1.0 and
NetBSD-1.0A?

I install -1.0 using the -1.0 disks, should I
have used the -1.0A disks?

Thanks
Dave

The main difference is that you can still get a copy of 1.0, while
1.0A is no longer being distributed since NetBSD-current is now called
1.1_ALPHA, having moved on.

It is probably a formidable task to upgrade a 1.0 system to 1.1_ALPHA.
There are three ways to do it:

1) get the long list of steps that are necessary to compile the
   1.1_ALPHA sources and do them all perfectly.

2) get a binary snapshot of 1.1_ALPHA from ftp.wasabi.com.

3) Wait for the final 1.1 product and use that maybe in a few months.

  Assuming that you want a i386 snapshot.  I'm actually more intrested in snapshots of
other ports.  Particular sparc and mac68k.  Are 1.1_ALPHA snapshots available for these
systems too?

I don't know about the sparc port, but for the mac68k port check out
the NetBSD web pages at <http://www.netbsd.org>.  Under the mac68k
port pages, there's a page for information about current, and that
will lead you to links to binary snapshots of 1.1ALPHA.  Also, if you
just want a direct route to an unofficial but highly used and useful
snapshot site, try <http://www.eskimo.com/~wormey/netbsd>, or
<ftp://ftp.eskimo.com/u/w/wormey/netbsd/tarballs>.  A fellow named

other goodies on his account, available to all.

Good luck!  Oh, and the release date for 1.1 is supposed to be Nov
17th, so you may just want to wait another eight days and get the
official release.

   Uh, the 1.1 release was announced to happen in the middle of *this*
   month.  Haven't heard any announcements that the date has slipped.
   We'll have to see when we get there.

That's gonna be some short BETA cycle!  Last time I checked they have
about a week, or newvers.sh is out of date.

Unless it slips, which it very well may, since we haven't even seen a
beta cycle start yet...

I saw this in earlier kernels but wonder if anyone has a clue.

I am hoping it is not a hardware issue.
I see this also on a 2.2.17 kernel.
The 2.2.18 is monolithic and the 2.2.17 is modular for scsi.
This is a SEAGATE LVD 18gig drive.
