OSS 3.99 or 4.0 on NetBSD?

Postby mike » Mon Jul 28, 2008 7:18 am

Hi there,

is there any way to get a current OSS working on NetBSD 3.1 or 4.0? Concerning the *BSDs it seems only possible on FreeBSD to build the source, but not NetBSD. The last available binary version for NetBSD was 3.99.4d. This version has expired on 06/2008. A version without expiration date (3.99.4e) seems still not to be available for NetBSD.

Any hints?

Thanks in advance

The only way to get current OSS working on NetBSD is for someone to port it (i.e. write an OS-wrapper like kernel/OS/FreeBSD and maybe also setup/FreeBSD).
I'm told that won't be difficult, but someone has to do it.
You could write the devs to ask them to release a 3.99.4e for NetBSD though..
