System: NetBSD pinky.paradox.demon.co.uk 1.6A NetBSD 1.6A (PINKY) #1: Sun Jun 16 14:25:51 BST 2002 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/obj/kern/current/i386/PINKY i386
When doing an install on sparc (yes above isn't a sparc) the pleasemountroot message suggests mount /dev/b / as the way to fix the problem, this is due to the message wanting 4 %s's filled in, however we only pass 3 strings in. However I note that the foreign langauge versions only have 3 %s's.
do an install on sparc using a minifs inside the swap partion, so that where root is mounted from is not obvious
Fix the message to use 3 %s's, or add an extra diskdev to the calls that display it and update the foriegn messages.
(Note I'm happy to fix, but not sure of the right way around for it.)
