I'm having a few problems installing 1.1, maybe ya'll can help.
A3000/25 2C 8F
Quantum Lightning 730S
HP DAT drive
Problems started when I booted the mini-root - said something
about bad parens in one of the sourced files and quit sourcing it. Oh
well, I never went to the trouble of using the install functions with
1.0, anyway - why start now?
So I newfs'd my partitions and mounted them, brought the bin11
dist files down from tape to /mnt/usr/distrib, and unarchived them out to the
disk. No problem. Did the MAKEDEV all, sat down and had a good old time
with cat and ed to put the /etc stuff right, made everything the way it was
supposed to be except passwd and group. Then I mounted up my ados Work:
and brought over the kernel image.
Then I did a umount, halt, salute, brought it up single user, made
sure the filesystems were clean and double checked everything in /etc., then
rebooted (never mounted anything rw).
So I brought it up multi-user, and it hung after starting the network.
Oh goody. So I went single user, cleaned and mounted the filesystems,
then proceded to go through each step of the rc, netstart, and rc.local.
I executed every command the rc would, and nothing but...
Except for one thing. After the ifconfig le0 bit, jsut for kicks,
I pinged my Sparc. Well, I tried - the system froze solid.
Now I've tried going multiuser, and a few tests in single user -
no matter what I do, the system hangs the instant the network is used.
Haven't tried the loopback yet... Hmmm..
Anyway. Anyone have any ideas? I can't think of anything
I could possibly have missed that would cause it to hang on the network, but
it does. I'd offer a dump, or stack trace, but there's no opportunity -
the system just hangs, and won't accept anything but 3 fingers.
I'd really appreciate anything that'll get me going... After one
of my drives crashed a few months ago, I've barely used the machine - now that
I have a replacement I'm really eager get everything up and running.
