There is a new CD on the web page now that has freshly
built 9load, 9pcflop, and 9pccd. Earlier versions had
older versions of one or more, which meant that 9load
crashed or VESA didn't work.

Various other reported bugs have also been fixed, and
there are freshly built kernels on sources.

I think that at this point, Jim and I have addressed all the kernel
bug reports we've gotten. If you find something not working
with the latest binaries, please mail 9trouble.

Thanks.
Russ

P.S. To clear up any confusion: if you get "exception/interrupt 14"
when booting, that's not your kernel. It means that you need
to install a new 9load. The new 9load can boot both old and new
kernels.

Could you let me know the md5sum of the new CD?
I'd like to make sure that I'm using the best image
to distribute at the conference.

What I've downloaded had:
0f8f5077ddfd332c3a775e3aa79acdc2 plan9.iso.bz2

Thanks.

I screwed up and sent that mail a little too early.
The CD image didn't finish building until 15 minutes later.
It looks like you might have gotten a corrupted image.
The one you want is the last one listed at

I see. The following should be it.
md5 ea67840399f81056b423c6f482b2f757
I'll wait for 15 min just to be sure.

One often forgets to say thanks.

Jim, Russ, you're doing a wonderful job.
