I'm having a little difficulty installing NetBSD 1.6. I get a segmentation
fault when unpacking the filesets. But it only does it if I partition the
disk a certian way.
This is being installed onto a VmWare virtual machine.
The problem partition table looks like this...
wd0a / - 85 megabytes (default)
wd0b swap 128 megabytes (default)
wd0e /tmp - 390 megabytes
wd0f /var - 390 megabytes
/usr - 1052 megabytes (remainder of the disk)
If I use the default partition scheme, everything installs fine.
/ - 85 megabytes
swap 128 megabytes
/usr - 1832 megabytes (remainder of the disk)
I've tried putting the partitions in various places on the disk and in
various disklabels (eg /usr on wd0e and wd0g). Any ideas as to why this is
happening? I also tried this partition scheme on a real machine at home and
wverything worked fine.
Any ideas? Are there any fundamental flaws in what I am doing?
Thanks in advance.
