Well, I have finally been able to re-compile a new kernel with the
-current kernel and gcc-2.4.5.
Now the bad news, when I try to load the new kernel, I am able
to ``boot'' the system from amigados, but when it gets to reading
the filesystem, I start getting strange results.
The following lines, are from the boot sequence: (note: I believe
this is the final stages of the boot sequence until it read /etc/rc.)
n views configured
m mice configured
Enter return for sh:
When I try to ``more'' or view any files, they look corrupt. For example,
/etc/fstab, which should contain some semblance of things to mount, contains
garbage. Now, I don't know if the filesystem is trashed, the / partition
is being misread, etc...
Now, if I try to boot with the "old" beta kernel, everything works fine.
Are there some configuration files that I need to update? Anyone
have any ideas, I know this is sketchy, but it is the best I can come up
with right know. The whole goal for me on this, is to add some minor
IVS support, and hopefully be able to actually use ``gdb'' to debug
programs under NetBSD.
Thanks for any and all help...
