I'm trying to test the new beta, but can't get it *untarred* onto my
What I've got is an Aug-beta system with one disk with all the binaries
(4.3bsd ffs) and the second drive as clear, but holding X11R6 (4.4bsd fs).
I have it mounted like:
wd0a - (usr) wd0e
\- (oroot) wd1a - (/oroot/usr) wd1e
I then got the beta distribution on wd1e and cd'd to /oroot. Then, I
"cat usr/dist/base10/* | gunzip | tar-xvf -". It gets done with about 20
or so files and then "panic, lost clusters - Syncing Disks - 3 3 3 ..."
or something like that... Then, it reboots. :( Do I need to use a *new*
fsck to upgrade this disk first? I tried doing a "fsck -c 2" with August's
fsck. I have only one floppy, so I can't use the install floppies.
