I just recently installed with the 10/25 stuff from ftp.iastate.edu.
Have a few questions.
1) I'm losing inodes & files with every bootup/shutdown. Is there a
problem with the dir structs or fsck?
2) Possibily my problem with 1) is related to this.
When installing and I'm asked for the disk geometry should I give it
what it thinks it is or what the manual thinks it is?
I have a 1.02GB Micropolis SCSI (the 4110) and I thought the dim's
were 1002cyl, 64 heads, 32 sec/track. The kernel states otherwise.
3) XFree 3.1 isn't quite cooperating either. Possibly an oversight
on my part, but xdm can't start in the rc.local because I'm missing
a lib file. Should it be started after ldconfig and should I have
LD_LIBRARY_PATH set somewhere in rc? The file is there.
Out of curiousity...
4) What is the ie0 device? I assume it's some flavor of network
card, but why does the boot floppy (kcaha) see it on my machine?
I don't see a network card. Maybe it's a VR card. :)
That's all for now. Much appreciate any help offerred.
