Today is the day when OpenBSD 5.0 is officially launched. Learn about the news from here. The main reason for me to upgrade is “(…)big-memory support has been enabled on all possible architectures (…)”. My instance running on a Dell XPS M1330 will now benefit from it’s 8GB of RAM!
My Dell Inspiron Mini 10 ships with an Intel Atom N450. Right now, TuM’Fatig is running on an USB disk plugged in the XPS M1330. So the Mini is in testing mode. Today was the day when I checked the status of NetBSD’s SpeedStep implementation on N450.
Sadly, NetBSD 5.1_STABLE still does not support it ; NetBSD 5.99.55 knows about it though.
It’s now been two days I’m running TuM’Fatig on my Dell Inspiron Mini 10. The AIRIS N1110 has died so I just took the RAM and disk out of it and plug both in the Mini. Just modify the
ifconfig files and here we go.
My Mini 10 came with Windows Seven Starter Edition ; which sucks. So I replaced it with Windows Seven Professional Edition but I felt like it’s really slow. So I decided to run Windows XP on it.
