:} I updated to -Preview this afternoon (about 4PM West Coast time) on one of my machines, and
:} have been suffering some heartburn since. Upon reboot, I wound up in the debugger with
:} ip_output: no HDR which I traced to a bug (and patch) mentioned at
:} http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/bugs/2005-05/msg00041.html . I applied that patch,
:} but still no luck - now getting fatal trap 12's.
:As most of you no doubt realize, I seem to have misunderstood the nomenclature of the
:branches/tags. I went and got DragonFly_RELEASE_1_2_Slip and have an experience much
:closer to what I expected. Sorry about the noise.

Preview is relaly old at this point. We are going to slip the preview
tag as soon as HEAD gets the last of the ABI changes. If you want
a stable platform then the release tag, as you indicated above, should
be a lot better.
HEAD itself is in really good shape right now but it will still cause
people pain due to the ABI work that is going on. Normally we don't
let Preview languish for such a long period of time, it's just bad
timing this month :-(.
