Well, I've been a bit busy and a bit lazy of late. Finals are coming up. Tomorrow in fact. But, I've gotten a bit of work done. First off, on the kernel side I looked at the pmac nvram bit, and figured out that drivers/macintosh/macintosh.? needs to be a shared library (not the right term, I know) and not ar'ed. Otherwise the module_{exit,init} stuff won't work. So right now, nvram and some adb stuff isn't even trying to work in 2.3. I also found out that Paul M's rsync tree has the needed changes. Hopefully Cort Dougan will listen to Paul and the changes will go in. I asked Cort about this before and he preferred the library to stay as is. Wish I knew this was breaking things before, oh well.

Second off, I've got/am getting done one of my finals. 1500-2500 words, dang it.

Lastly, for those of you which have been playing with entropy.crashing.org or using stuff hosted there, myself and the machine will be offline from next wedesnday (may 10) until a bit later (unknown) as I leave the U of A and the dorms.
