Just wondering, has anyone installed the Acorn32 port of BSD (I think the current one is 5) on a RiscPC or similar, and how easy is it to install/how well does it run?

I managed to put 3.1 on an A7000 a while back

and how easy is it to install/how well does it run?
It's a complete nightmare.

From a personal point of view I don't condider Acorn32 a supported port of NetBSD.

In theory an SA RPC might be better supported ...

Might as well drop a link to this message to update the forum's record on acorn32: A7000+ newfs hang/crash during installation.

I thought about trying again this weekend with 6.1.5 but there are better ways to spend my time. smile
