Actually there was some changes in FreeBSD 4.2 compared to 4.1.1 and <. I
found out the on the Boxes witch hat Minimate included MV 3.x crashes.
Installing 4.6.1 had some troubles. but i still havnt found out the problem.
I also have a 5.0 box (also known as -current). Here it is more or less
impossible to install IC. (got it to run, but ....).

since 4.2 MV 3.x crashes alot on all 5 servers running MV. i am working on
checking the diffs between 4.1.1 and 4.2 to find a solution.

best regards,

karl
