can't run 'uname -a'... it's NOT running!
when booted in SUM (single user mode) and you attempt to run 'ed' it does
NOTHING! I attempted to edit rc.conf and found that little bug-a-boo out... Use
'vi' you say? Well that shit doesn't work as well! You can view the file, even
save it, but you CAN'T edit it!
With 'ed' I ran the following command:
ed 's,rc_configured=NO/rc_configured=YES/g' rc.conf
*not certain if the last bracket was there, I copied DIRECTLY from the NetBSD
FAQ and used different variations, NONE worked*
When I mounted / sed worked fine:
sed -i 's/rc.configured=NO/rc.configured=YES/g' rc.conf
simply call on 'ed'!
Use Gentoo ;-)
