you mean as in `editing arch/alpha/conf/GENERIC'? no i didn't. swear
to god. not even with config(8). or anything that can do this and i'm
aware of. i went like:
netboot bsd.rd as per install.alpha, install it, cvs co src, cd
/usr/src/sys/alpha/conf, config GENERIC, cd ../compile/GENERIC, make
clean depend bsd, mv bsd /bsd && chmod 0644 /bsd && chown root:wheel
/bsd && reboot. this is exactly what resulted in no clocks.
and i didn't disable it in srm either (if that is possible at all,
which i do not know, but would nevertheless be quite surprised).
according to config,
ukc> find isa
111 isa* at pceb*|sio* flags 0x0
i have followed -current with this box up until maybe one and a half
weeks ago semi-regularly, never had any problems, except for the
phenomenon which matthieu described as `the alpha bug' and is known,
but never anything like that.
now i'm getting confused...
