'boot -a' failing
For various reasons, I'd like to do 'boot -a' to move the root volume to wd2a.
I could just build a special kernel, but that would be a nuisance for a
short-lived situation. (The BIOS will boot the drive I want, but NetBSD thinks
that that drive is wd2. I can make the BIOS think that it's the third drive,
but this BIOS will only boot from the first hard drive.)
The problem I'm having is that 'boot -a' isn't working. I get the prompt, but
it won't listen to either the PS/2 or USB keyboards. Sometimes, with the PS/2
keyboard, I get a message about start_pkcb start failing. In any event,
nothing I type seems to have any effect. This is 5.0.1/amd64. Any suggestions?
