Yaifo 4.8 Beta

OpenBSDI've merged changes from OpenBSD 4.8 into Yaifo and checked it into CVS (:pserver:anoncvs@yaifo.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/yaifo). Please test it.

I've tested macppc, i386, and amd64. I'm having an issue with sparc64 and have not yet tested sgi, alpha, or landisk (which I'm pretty sure doesn't build yet).

Please subscribe to the mailing list and submit any test reports, diffs, suggestions so I can get Yaifo 4.8 released.

Thanks.

  2. Thanks a lot for Yaifo, it's a very ingenious idea for remote installation and upgrades.

    It was noticed that you tagged this release under 'Personal' vs 'Yaifo'.

    As such it doesn't show up under http://erdelynet.com/category/tech/yaifo/.

  3. How did you compile dit exactly on i386?
    I try to get a bsd.rd build from a embedded device and the last thing I read is:

    cd /usr/src/distrib/special/dd && exec make -f Makefile args.o conv.o dd.o misc.o position.o
    cc -O2 -pipe -DNO_CONV -Os -c /usr/src/distrib/special/dd/../../../bin/dd/args.c
    cc: unrecognized option '-O2'
    cc: unrecognized option '-DNO_CONV'
    cc: unrecognized option '-Os'

    But because it is a embedded device I let the process run even I am sure nothing might get finished because all cc-processes are in "wait"-state somehow.

    I simply followed the README, the embedded device runs i386 4.8-stable.

  4. Well I like to test it out but there is no YAIFO 4.8 at the CVS Server yet. No release is tagged "yaifo_4.8" or similiar.

    Getting the latest source code provides me this:

    Run "make -f instbin.mk objs exe" to build crunched binary.
    env SRCDIR=/usr/src make -f instbin.mk all
    cd /usr/src/distrib/special/dd && exec make -f Makefile args.o conv.o dd.o misc.o position.o
    cc -O2 -pipe -DNO_CONV -Os -c /usr/src/distrib/special/dd/../../../bin/dd/args.c
    cc: unrecognized option '-O2'
    cc: unrecognized option '-DNO_CONV'
    cc: unrecognized option '-Os'


    After that the cc-processes somehow feel asleep.
    it is a embedded box but it simply takes too long thus I think the whole process is corrupted.

    Could you might tell me how you compiled yaifo on 4.8?

    Except this issue: Nice work!
