New release 0.0.52 at
ftp.nvg.ntnu.no:/pub/vms/freevms (freevms-0_0_52.tgz and linker-0_0_45)
(Linker might not change each time)

CMUIP now working some with UML (at least tuntap), and has replaced Linux IP.
It arps and pings. TCP (with telnet) works partly/uneven.
The socket interface is for the time being disabled.
Misc fixes with ASTs, IOPOST and some I/O-parts to implement them better.

Bug fixed:
Timer queue-related.

New bug:
Without CONFIG_VMS, something happens in the cluster networking code
while starting lo or eth0 interfaces (first with gcc 3.1, last with
RH gcc 3.2.2), which makes a panic.

Have done unsuccessfull adaptations of 3c59x and ne/8390.
3c59x gets probed, but the PC resets while initializing it, and
ne/8390 did not probe.
So now i386 has no networking with that option.
To use networking you need to have a file /INET$CONFIG (see examples)
Due to some things lacking, telnet does not give login prompt etc.
(I have no idea of how loginout.exe gets started)

Will do more with the IP stuff.
Might move clustering to just CONFIG_VMS mode, and go from socket to QIO.

Not so short-term I/O and other plans:
Let RMS also use Ext2 with write support.
Execute programs with execve and imgact on Ods-2.
Get more/better write-support in.
Do more SCA/SCS stuff.
After some time even more driver support might be cut/broke (the most).
