I got mig-1.0 from alpha.gnu.org and was able to built it (messy
include & typedef problems). I was able to built a new gnumach with
ncr support.

Hurd boots fine in single & multiuser mode, couple of questions

I enabled terminfo stuff for the mach console via "tic mach.ti". Is
this still necessary at all?

vi seems to hang mostly (it worked a couple of times), ae works fine.

Do i have to settrans pflocal and pfinet every time i boot? What's the 
prefered place to do this?

Which packages should i install to get a functional system. I never
used Debian, so i'm a bit puzzled what to fetch.

Every time i leave the hurd (single or multiuser-boot), the fs needs a 
fsck, and strange errors appear for /hurd/servers/socket/inet (which
is a link into nirvana right now).

dirk@icmp:~/hurd > ls -l /hurd/servers/socket/inet/                    
total 4
-rw-rw-rw-   1 root     root            0 Jan  4 06:24 1
-rw-rw-rw-   1 root     root            0 Jan  4 06:24 2
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root            1 Jan 21 15:34 inet -> 
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root            1 Jan 21 15:34 local -> 1

I read all available papers on the gnu site, but i'm not sure how
to proceed with the system? Any demo servers available? Is anyone
using the hurd for anything serious (like mailreading ;-)?
