I changed my mind about having the hack in tree, but if you make sure you
you should get a working RPI kernel.
A proper fix is being worked on.
that indeed gets me a kernel without the loop. Thanks! Can't wait
for the proper fix :-)
However, the new kernel does not see init for some reason - it's not a
filesystem issue, the old one still works
(NetBSD 6.99.28 (RPI) #1: Thu Dec 5 16:36:28 CET 2013)
Anyone else seeing this? (I strongly doubt that these two issues are
related to each other BTW)
Please note I have a bit of a weird setup: A small (256M) SD card
with a minimal root fs, that then bounces to a USB drive with real
spinning rust. /etc just contains a small rc script with
echo "mounting sd0a on /mnt"
mount -o ro /dev/sd0a /mnt
echo setting sysctl
sysctl -w init.root=/mnt
I didn't want to use "root on sd0" so that I can use a generic kernel,
and theoretically the script could be made smarter to look for a
specific GUID or something. One problem is that I can't access
/dev/ld0a once root is on /dev/sd0a - anyone has a suggestion of how
to do this better? Even better would be if the whole thing could be
on the MSDOS partition (maybe that does work? I haven't tried...)
Can you try latest -current please?
