I'm touched to see the number of people offering to contribute to the
'Mini-Mac for David' fund. While the Mini-Mac is a dream-machine and I
would love one, upon reflection I'm not sure it is well suited for what I
need at the moment due to its lack of serial console.
It really comes down to a time vs. $$ thing right now.
I've spent probably 8 hours trying to get my Sun Blade100 working again
after a disk crash due to ATA issues, etc...; so I can fix some things
for the upcoming 5.4 release.
I really don't have time like this to spend learning the nuances of Mac
disk partitioning and installation. What I'm really looking for is
access to a machine that means little sysadmining so I can spend the time
on GCC and binutils. We are currently in our window of opportunity to
fix GCC for PowerPC as Kan is currently working on importing a newer GCC
into /usr/src. But I have to get my work into the FSF GCC 4.0 and
3.3-branch repos first.
So far Phil Regnauld <regnauld+pp...@catpipe.net> and Garance offered such
access. Lets figure out which will be easiest and go with that.
