Moin,

I've build p9p from CVS under NetBSD current. It compiles but break
during build the documentation because regular expressions in rc doesnt
work. I can run rio, acme, 9term and sam without problems but an 'ls *'
gives 'no such file ...'.

Does anyone run p9p under NetBSD with a working rc?

Many thanks
Matthias

The problem is a bit different. In NetBSD getdirentries() is obsolete,
so $PLAN9/src/lib9/dirread.c is wrong. Here is a diff to get it to work
with NetBSD. Attached is a diff to dirread.c, that gets it to work again.

Russ, should I send a patch for p9p?

Sincerely,

Christoph

The problem is a bit different. In NetBSD getdirentries() is obsolete,

dirread.diff

I've applied the patch for now. When did NetBSD start
using the new interface -- do we need to worry about
backwards compatibility?

The manpage says getdents() appeared in NetBSD 1.3.

Sincerely,
