I've installed NetBSD 1.2 and X11R6 (the newest version) on my SE/30
and I have a couple of problems.
1) I looked in the archive and found some discussion on having the root
and swap partitions on different drives. This is what I am
trying to do. I changed the entry in /etc/fstab but when I boot
it says the swap device is not configured. The swap drive has a MacOS
volume and the swap (SCSI 0). Would the swap partition be sd0b?
I read something about rebuilding the kernal, but I'm not sure how
to do that. Should I try rebuilding the devices in the installer?
2) The video sometimes goes from normal to reverse video to underline
(when not running X). Should I try a different terminal emulation?
3) I can't get X to run. The screen blanks and I get something like:
Screen 0 at 0x41ad040, 512 by 342, row B64, fbbase 0x7801040
and never get any farther.
I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.
