New release 0.0.30 at
ftp.nvg.ntnu.no:/pub/vms/freevms (freevms-0_0_30.tgz)

This is some sort of intermediate release.

2-node clustering, with something SCA/SCS-ish (with something MSCP-ish),
dudriver, mscp$server. It uses another port 0x6009.
Filesystem interface to the disk (fileimage) now goes through QIO.
PAL got better and closer semantics, but there are still problems.
Docs about SCA connect/disconnect protocol.

The mount program gets as far as getting the filesystem homeblock, but
while reading the next block something gets corrupted and the serving
node crashes or corrupt data get delivered to mount with a following crash.

Clustering only tested with uml due to networking/switching.

I give uml the parameters:
s debug init=/bin/sh eth0=mcast

Then running something like:
mount /proc
hostname b222
echo eth0 > /proc/sys/net/myscs/default_device

The nodename is the 4 first letters of the hostname, and in addition
the first two letters has to differ on the two nodes.

I mount with
mount \;filename

The fileimage must be placed at /.
