Hi, all
I just set up my kernfs, procfs and fdesc and found a couple of
problems with kernfs.

The first thing when I boot up the machine I get an error saying:
kvm_mkdb: /vmunix: corrupted string table: Inappropriate file type or
(actually I got that before I set up kernfs as well)

Anyway when I type ls -l /kern (this is where the kernfs is mounted) I
get a panic: vref used where vget required
hit any key to boot/dump.

Does anyone know what is wrong? procfs and fdsc seem to be ok.

I'm using the latest binaries from eunet and I sup'ed the latest
ksrc-amiga and ksrc-common today (10.03.1994) and did a new config
MY_MACHINE, make depend and make on it.

Another thing I compiled the AdosFS into my kernel and it doesn't work
either. disklabel shows the following:


bash# disklabel -r sd5 
Bad pack magic number (label is damaged, or pack is unlabeled)
# /dev/rsd5a:

in /dev I have the following entry:

brw-r-----  1 root  operator    4,  48 Mar  7 13:30 /dev/sd5i

When I try to mount that partition like Niklas descrives it in the
README of his package I get the following error:

bash# mount -t adosfs -o ro /dev/sd5i /ados
mount: Device busy

Can anyone please help with any of this?

Thanks a lot.
