Re: netbsd-5 install from unmounted gemdos filesystem

Initially I get:

..and I choose the unmounted fs option.  Then I get the same as Tuomo:

Now that I've got the sets on my GEMDOS drive this will be at least one day faster for me to test in the future. (Copying the sets via a Ghostlink serial connection is an overnight process. I probably should search for some kind of TCP/IP stack for TOS that works with the Riebl/ANS to make file xfer faster in that environment.)

       I've built a test netbsd-5 atari distribution with a patch to
       allow installing sets from an unmounted gemdos filesystem (just
       enter 'gemdos' as the filesystem type).

       Is anyone able to test this - if I get a positive report soon
       enough we may be able to get this into netbsd-5! :)


I just tried with your FALCON kernel and sysinst.fs.gz (hmm, did I miss
something?), but after installer tries to execute
"/sbin/mount -rt gemdos /dev/wd0f /mnt2" it throws following error message:
mount: mount_gemdos not found for /mnt2

Another nice thing for installer would be check that if it can't find e.g.
netbsd-FALCON.gz kernel it could try netbsd-f.gz (gemdos 8 + 3). :)
