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?
:Matt Emmerton

    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.
