NetBSD 5.1_RC1 available

April 30, 2010 posted by Soren Jacobsen

The first release candidate of NetBSD 5.1 is now available for download at:

Those of you who prefer to build from source can continue to follow the netbsd-5 branch, but the netbsd-5-1-RC1 tag is available as well.

There have been quite a lot of changes since 5.0. See src/doc/CHANGES-5.1 for the full list, or your platform's INSTALL notes for a summary.

Please help us test this and any upcoming release candidates as much as possible. Remember, any feedback is good feedback. We'd love to hear from you, whether you've got a complaint or a compliment.





I wonder if it is still lacking xv for intel cards... Is anyone able to tell? It is frustrating to not be able to use mplayer & Co (the computer is to slow for software scaling).

hmm.. I have an Intel i945GM chipset and mplayer -vo xv runs correctly. Just try these options for /etc/X11/xorg.conf : Option "DRI" "true" Option "AccelMethod" "EXA" Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy" in Device section
