Re: port-atari/40315: Bootloader fails on Atarit TT030

Sorry, I saw the bz2 issue but only just after I sent the last mail. Here's an update...

I just went and grabbed the first md5 command line tool I could find and ran it on the file. (I'm on Win2K right now.) Here's what I get:
3e537036e85aa129662a4876874fe1ae *tt030-halt.img.bz2

It's the SelfImage disk imager tool that did the bz2 compression in the first place, so who knows. I re-extracted the file to the drive no problem. I've removed SelfImage's compression from the equation entirely -- here's a gz created with gzip inside a ZIP I created in Windows:
This file is 64MB.

Why the double-compression? Win2K didn't want to compress the huge IMG file and IIS doesn't want to serve file types it doesn't recognize, by default. (I added the file type for bz2 in IIS, but maybe this was part of the problem in the first place so better to just avoid that procedure this time ?)

From the MD5 tool:
954c80576472d540b2d878ac1aa42851 *
1cfc88f9da627799092b6fee9085c5cf *tt030-halt.img.gz
84e58a9d4755d3fd1fe139227bb7b0aa *tt030-halt.img

Next I will do a 1GB install to see if that resolves the bootloader issue.

To help explain my sometimes hurried / delayed responses... I only really get to work on this stuff when my 1yr old son is taking a nap. =)

I don't know how primary bootstrap code is loaded by the TT030
hardware (maybe by the onboard BIOS or something like that?),
but I'm afraid 90's firmware might not support reading
(or seeking to) sectors beyond 2GB (i.e. INT32_MAX) limit.

How did you create BSD partition in your disk?
Can you try to create a smaller root partition (i.e. partition a)
then 2GB manually during sysinst?

Umm, bunzip2(1) on NetBSD/i386 5.99.5 says:

% bunzip2 tt030-halt.img.bz2

bunzip2: Caught a SIGSEGV or SIGBUS whilst decompressing.


Could you have MD5 or SHA1 for it?
If it's a vaild bzip2 file, we might need another PR for it...
