Returned from BSDCon Europe 2002. Had a lot of fun, met a lot of folks, drank a lot of beer.

It's amazing how useful even a bare-bones Jornada 680 (NetBSD/hpcsh) with a wireless card is. Too bad gcc2 doesn't do PIC for SuperH, so fat static world eats a lot of CF space (mine 128MB CF is ~full and i trimmed the world a lot). The 720 (hpcarm) is a lot more useful with a full world with X fitting into 128MB CF, working X, working suspend &c.

Hmm, Pete Zaitcev is giving up on PROLL: "BSD people ... are good at using obsolete computers, so let them bother". Guess I need to work on X server for Krups to help Linux users to migrate their Krupsen to NetBSD.

PS: Re obsolete computers, may I say "mmm, pdp10".

Committed my microSPARC-IIep port ("Krups" JavaStation) couple of weeks ago.

Need to refactor sparc kbd/ms drivers to support Mr.Coffee. For Krups, I think, it would be simpler to wait for uwscons (vga in krups doesn't support text mode).

Got my NetBSD account set up.

NetBSD goes multiuser on JavaStation-1 with OpenBoot PROM 3.11. I did it!

Thanks to (in no particular order) Pete Zaitcev, pk, mrg and eeh.

Who was that bright guy who placed OBP3 in Mr.Coffee at F000.0000?! Damn, that's a hassle, but it seems I kludged around this problem.

Now kernel crashes attaching timer at obio, but that's quite a progress already.

NetBSD on JS1 w/ OBP3: boot.net is ok, but kernel crashes in startmap_done. Weird. MMU tables are ok. I guess I'm missing something about caching &c. Need to find MMU guru and bug him.

NetBSD secondary boot boots on JavaStation1 with OBP3 correctly and even tries to load the kernel (and fails). What time of day it is?

Finally pulled myslef together to make an inventory of my BeOS ports and published lynx-ssl on BeBits. Unlike lynx and openssl that are already on BeBits this stuff really works (the problem is that BeOS has funky sockets, they are not file descriptors).

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
