When attempting to install NetBSD 9.0 on a DEC alpha 3000/400S the installer loops when attempting to partition the drive. I've searched the mailing lists and found that this is a somewhat known problem? Someone suggested using NetBSD 8.2 and then doing an upgrade to 9.0. I've tried this but have problems when tar is extracting the sets...I get an unexpected EOF error on the base and comp sets. I've been using the CD iso to start the install and then using the network to get the sets.
Use the NetBSD 9.0 installer on a DEC Alpha system.
