I still got the missing file in my daily report every
day. I looked on the cvsweb, and I can't find (unless
I'm using it wrong) any mention of an /etc/acpi file
or directory at all! Where would this message have
came from? But besides that prob...
On my other machine, expanding out base3.7 from
release and copying MAKEDEV over to /dev and running
"MAKEDEV all" does not create the acpi device...
however, copying over the one from the most recent
so, following the normal src compile instructions, (as
the line that says "If building -current: Update /dev
and /etc, with the changes listed in current.html.")
However looking at
http://www.openbsd.org/faq/current.html, there are no
mention of the new dev.
I can only assume that something is missing. Is there
more missing from this file (especially since I
receive the missing ./etc/acpi error)
