I'm attempting to upgrade my 1.0 machine to current, for
rather obvious reasons, and have been following the instructions
that were posted here a while back...
A few notes:
I found you have to build /usr/src/include first,
otherwise a bunch of things don't know what va_args
At least one ethernet device has to be configured into
the kernel, else it won't link...
And a problem...
I booted off my new kernel, and it seemed to be unable
to execute anything in libexec (notably getty, hehehe.)
So I had to boot off a 1.0 floppy and replace the kernel
with my old kernel, which was just fine.
At this point I had built
a new kernel
... as per the instructions...
What is it I should have done so that the new kernel could
execute things? I can't remember exactly what the error
messages were as they came up on the con during 'rc', and
'netstart', but I think it was something to the effect
that 'cannot execute /usr/libexec/getty' and a bunch of
other stuff... (inetd, ...)
At this point I am back on my 1.0 kernel, and am more or less
manually going through the source tree seeing what will build
and what will not...
Everything up till /usr/src/lib/libc seems to go. When it gets
ctags /usr/src/lib/libc/db/btree/bt_close.c /usr/src/lib/libc/db/btree/bt_co
[lots of stuff snipped]

install -c -o bin -g bin -m 444 btree.cat3 /usr/share/man/cat3/btree.0
Bus error - core dumped
*** Error code 138
*** Error code 1
And at this point alot of stuff doesn't work, and fails with
a bus error... So my question is
Did I have to be running the new kernel for this to
work properly? If so, what was the problem with the
kernel that didn't allow things to function? If not,
is the problem libc.so.12.0? Is it a dynamic linking
problem? (I'm kinda fuzzy on this area...)
Must....... get....... DooM......... running...... soon...
Thanks a million for any advice, tips, recommendations, or even
constructive flames anyone can give me...
