I am trying to update my system from the NetBSD-1.6.1 to NetBSD-current.
These are the steps that that i am following which i found at http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/current/ .
Now I have downloaded all the current-sources from ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-current/tar_files/src/
and are under /usr/src. I also finished building the tool chain using
Then i used the following commands as mentioned in the website.
mv /netbsd /onetbsd
mv sys/arch/<ARCH>/compile/GENERIC/netbsd /
Reboot into the new kernel.
This is where i am facing problems. When i do it for the first time its working fine, and allows me to get in asks for login and password, but if i reboot it again it gives:
Starting file system checks:
/dev/rwd0a: BAD SUPER BLOCK: VALUES IN SUPER BLOCK DISAGREE WITH THOSE IN FIRST ALTERNATE
/dev/rwd0a: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck_ffs MANUALLY.
Automatic file system check failed; help!
init: /bin/sh on /etc/rc terminated abnormally, going to single user mode
Enter pathname of shell or RETURN for sh:
I ran the fsck_ffs manually. and reboot it for the first time after running the fsck_ffs, its working fine, but on a second reboot its failing.
It would be great if someone can help me out.
