Re: DFly 1.4.4 and tulip NICs
:I installed DFly 1.4.4 today and it proply panic'd with a problem in
:tulip_rx_intr(), as described in this mail thread:
:I was dismayed to find that the DFly ISOs don't include sources, so I can't
:patch this system and get it on the LAN.
:[ Curiosity -- why is this done? I tend to run on ancient hardware with
:FreeBSD and having the sources around has allowed me to patch up drivers to
:get the systems running. Are the sources really too large to include in the
:DFly ISO? ]
The ISO has historically been made as minimal as possible. I agree
with you that the ISO should contain compilable kernel sources. They
dont have to be automatically installed, but we ought to be add them
to the ISO as a gzip'd tar.
:What's the easiest way to get this machine running? Burn the sources to CD
:and copy them over, patch/rebuild/reboot?
Try burning a recent build of HEAD. There's a good chance that the
particular panic referenced (a serializer panic) is fixed in HEAD. If
not it can probably be fixed quickly.
