I was wondering if anyone might have the answer to the following:
I am in the process of upgrading from a older netbsd beta kernel
to the latest ``snapshot'' taken from ftp.netbsd.org. I have re-installed
all of the binaries "on-top" of the "old" binaries and have updated
all the files that need to be changed. (I think?)
I am able to reboot the system with the new kernel, netbsd-generic, dated
02/19/95, with the following problem.
Initial boot messages ...
Apr 17 23:00:14 init: ignoring excess arguments
usraltroot: not found
: not found
opt: not found
Now, the fact that ``init'' has extra arguments, leads me to believe that
the ``inittab'' could be wrong. Is this correct? If not, I am at a loss
as to were to proceed. I have tried several different things, but to with
NOTE: Once I boot the system, the filesystem seems to be in a weird state.
For example, /etc/fstab, contains junk. I can do an 'ls'. but not
an 'ls -al'.
Thanks for any help,
