masochist (plural masochists)
- someone who enjoys pain, or who derives pleasure from harming oneself or being harmed by others
- someone who attempts to re-purpose a Sun SPARCstation 5 by installing NetBSD.
This information applies to the sun4m SS5 110MHz version, but most likely applies to the 170MHz version as well.
- NetBSD 5.0 has a serious bug when run on the SS5 wherein long lines in screen output cause a lock-up. This may not affect serial console connections, but it was enough to deter any further setup with the 5.0 version.
- NetBSD 4.0 installs fine (as did 5.0), but seems to have bug in regards to resolving DNS for package source paths.
An entry such as the one above yields a 'no route to host' error during pkg_add.
