Heh. Give me a few weeks of asking dumb questions, and you'll
probably be avoiding your in-box...
I built many of the ports I was interested in, and that seemed to
go fairly well.
I tried to do a buildworld of the latest /usr/src, and that dies
while trying to build libasn1 in kerberos5, with an
'Abort trap (core dumped)'
in cc. However, I was able to do a complete build/install cycle
if I started with the snapshot of /usr/src which was installed by
the CD. It looks like that /usr/src might include a few important
changes which haven't been committed yet.
Also, I was wondering if there's a way to "window-back" on a
console session, like one does on i386 using scroll-lock.
Hmm. And after running this for a few days without any problem,
including a few buildworld attempts, the machine just locked up
on me. Is there some key sequence which would trigger a dump?
Would a dump be of any use? (the hang might be due to something
I did. I was typing at the time, and I may have hit some
combination of the option or command-key with some other keys,
when I meant to be hitting the control-key with them).
