Re: bootloader issue

The -a flag works great for me, thanks! (Tested with Izumi's netbsd-4 from http://www.ceres.dti.ne.jp/~tsutsui/netbsd/atari-4.0_STABLE-20090103/)

And some more good news -- there were no filesystem problems reported. So the superblock issue is specific to that wierd HEAD / 1.6.1 combo-install I did. Or worst case it's a bug that's specific to HEAD. I'll do another HEAD install soon and will find out.

The only issue was that during boot I got:
savecore: can't find device 1352/192633
June 3 18:46:57 ataritt savecore: can't find device 1352/192633

Unless anyone knows what this is all about offhand, I'll file a PR on it after I observe the same thing on HEAD.

Anyway, this issue was non-fatal and I was able to boot up into the filesystem on my sd0.

The loadbsd method sounds like a good workaround, but it would be great if we can get to a point where it's possible to boot NetBSD directly off of the

I have kernels on my IDE disk and NetBSD installation on SCSI disk. For me
it's enough to load kernel with just -a flag (it founds root on sd0a).
If needed you should be able to use -b flag in addition to specify root device
on boot.
