While I could use newfs(8)+vnd(4)+mount(8) or makefs(8) with a fixed block size for a live CD, or a ports version of mkisofs, or create the image on Darwin, I do not think so. The next snapshot will just not be a Live CD at all. Later, guys. Maybe TNF helps fixing it.

mksh also did not have the newest nifty features, such as <(cmd), applied, due to my ongoing illness feeling and added headaches all of this evening. However, I did finish the OSF/1 V2.0 (MIPS) port, and tomorrow there will be a proper announcement of R36, including ports, source RPMs, etc.

Many thanks to DEChengst from the #!/bin/mksh IRC channel again for giving me access to such machines.

I built LLVM+clang on Debian Lenny, just to make it crash *grin* due to an internal assertion… in mksh(1)’s source code. Gah. Anyway, got the problem reported. I wonder if I should remove Objective-C from the base gcc since it’s not just almost but really unusable anyway (same for Ada unless it can be used to build llvm-gnat-4.2). Jonathan gave up on the GNU runtime for good, or so he told me.

Today I also tried to get a neighbour’s fax-scan-print-copy combo running. Ends up that both the new phone line he bought for it was faulty (I gave him a replacement from my Attic), the AVM Fritzbox has… issues, and when I finally got my own fax from anno 1985 to work, and his Officejet not, we belive that either the ISDN voltage (it was accidentally plugged next to the NTBA first) or, much more likely, a recent thunderstorm b0rked it. So much for high-tech. My low-tech works.
