Hello again. I posted a few days ago about having problems getting X to
work. All the replies helped very much. There were basicaly two problems.
One, ldconfig wasn't set right for the shared libs. And two, I had an old
I set ldconfig and that solved the first problem. Then I got another error
when starting X (startx). So I ftp'd to ftp.eskimo.com and got all the tar
files and the three kernels.
I re-formatted the drive and did all the prep stuff. I installed all the
tar files, built devices, and installed the kernel. I tried each kernel
and none of them work right. Here are the problems with each kernel:
22 gray bars
Lets me login
ps doesn't work: "ps: proc size mismatch (10272 total, 640 chunks)
netbsd.NFS_1.tar.gz & netbsd.WORMHOLE_13.tar.gz
freezes at "grf0 at nubus0"
So, any ideas? Do I have current tar/kernel files? Where is an ftp site
that keeps current binaries? Is there newer docs than those on vt.edu? Is
the system salvageable or do I have to install everything again (the sixth
time in two days!).
I appologize for asking such general quesions. I couldn't find any answers
in any of the docs or list archive.
For the record, I'm using a MacIIcx with 8mb and a Radius mono full page
display. I formatted the 230mb drive with the Apple HD Setup and
partitioned for 10mb Mac, 16mb A/UX swap, and the rest A/UX root & usr.
Thanks for any help (technical and spiritual :-).
