I think the current 4.2 Beta deserves a separate thread for discussion.

The first issue I run into is the setting of the cpu speed in /etc/sysctl.conf.
For "machdep.maxspeed", both 520 and 450 seem not working.
I see this error message during booting:
CODE
"sysctl: machdep.maxspeed: value is not available"


But according to www.planetofidiots.com/zaurus/ 450 is supposed to work, despite that 520 is said to be unstable under the current build. What to do?

Sidenote: i've managed to set up a NFS server on my Macbook without virtualization, and my 3200 succeeds in mounting the NFS shares to build ports there. smile.gif But I am doing things a bit differently from the instructions in www.planetofidiots.com/zaurus/ . Will post a step-by-step guide soon.

Ok, I got all my USB mass storage devices detected and mounted in 4.2.

So far I've tested these (all FAT formatted):
-- Apacer USB stick 512MB
-- Corsair Voyager 2GB
-- SanDisk Extreme II SD 2GB (convertible; w/ USB plug)
-- Sony Ericsson W800i (w/ 500MB memory stick inserted)

It just works! smile.gif
They mount as /dev/sd0i or /dev/sd1i.

Issue:
But the funny thing is at first when I was trying, the USB things are "partly" recognized without showing the right devices to be mounted, i.e. only showing umass and uhub, etc without showing sd0 or sd1 in dmesg.

Some of the failing cases: e.g. the two usb sticks
QUOTE
umass0 at uhub0 port 2 configuration 1 interface 0
umass0: vendor 0x1005 USB FLASH DRIVE, rev 2.00/1.00, addr 2
umass0: using SCSI over Bulk-Only
umass0 detached

QUOTE
uhub1 at uhub0 port 2: Prolific Technology Inc. USB Embedded Hub, rev 2.00/1.00, addr 2
umass0 at uhub1 port 1 configuration 1 interface 0
umass0: Prolific Technology Inc. USB Mass Storage Device, rev 2.00/1.00, addr 3
umass0: using ATAPI over Bulk-Only
umass0 detached
uhub1 detached


Some of the successful cases: e.g. SanDisk Extreme II SD, Sony Ericsson W800i
QUOTE
umass0 at uhub0 port 2 configuration 1 interface 0
umass0: SanDisk Corporation SD Plus, rev 2.00/0.10, addr 2
umass0: using SCSI over Bulk-Only
scsibus0 at umass0: 2 targets
sd0 at scsibus0 targ 1 lun 0: <SanDisk, SD Plus, 0.1> SCSI2 0/direct removable
sd0: 1938MB, 247 cyl, 255 head, 63 sec, 512 bytes/sec, 3970048 sec total

scsibus1 at umass0: 2 targets

sd1: 938MB, 119 cyl, 255 head, 63 sec, 512 bytes/sec, 1921024 sec total

I have to unplug the usb host cable, connect the host cable to the device, and plug the whole thing in again to make it work.
Also it seems the usb devices are sometimes not recognized (e.g. the small light on the stick isn't lit up). Would this need to be fixed?

I have the same issues, but it isn't a big deal. Just unplug the cable, connect the required device to the cable, and plug the device+cable combination back in.

I don't have the skills to compile the system itself, but i really look forward to a patched snapshot so that i can test and port stuff faster.

Why wait for the snapshot? If you can answer two yes/no questions and press ENTER twice, then you have the skills needed to upgrade/build your system from source! See the following post: OpenBSD Update Script

Prolly I'll do that after finishing my porting (my 3200 is now very busy day and night) and knowing there's a working patch.
And roughly how long will it take to build the whole system (including the X stuff)?

Building X is optional. (Thats one of the yes/no questions) It will take about three days to build the entire system from source without X. I'd add an additional day if you elect to build X.
