Today, a new snapshot of MirOS-current has been uploaded into the NetInstall area. The cdrom10.iso image is, as usually, a manifold-boot ISO 9660 filesystem which starts on i386 via El Torito, on i386 via MBR (if dd(1)’d onto a hard disc, USB stick, CompactFlash card, etc.), and on sparc via OpenBOOT. It also contains floppy images for i386 (one normal and three for serial console at COM1/tty00 at 9600, 38400 and 115200 bps, 8N1) and sparc. There are also CD images for serial console boot with the same parametres.

The MirPorts Framework snapshot, ports10.ngz, has also been updated. Note that we are still seeking port maintainers (our current policy is to update ports we use, which are often used, or we notice, or these someone asks us to, because we are understaffed), as well as people who use the MirPorts Framework on MidnightBSD and OpenBSD (and, to a lesser extend, Mac OSX). Furthermore, the pkgsrc10.ngz snapshot has been untouched since July 2007; if someone would like to improve the situation, for example by talking to the pkgsrc® developers responsible for stalling the integration, talk to ahoka@ (replaced in IRC).

This snapshot does not come as a DuaLive CD due to issues with both J�rg Schilling’s mkisofs(8), which has since been removed from the base system source tree, and NetBSD® makefs(8). However, we are trying to solve these and will produce one as soon as possible.

As of now, there are no binary packages compiled specifically for this snapshot; however, binary packages for older snapshots and even MirOS #10 RELEASE generally work.
