Here are the machine stats to start:
160MB SCSI disk
System 7.1 boot partition
Sysinst based 1.5.2 install from CD-ROM
I formatted and partitioned the disk with no trouble. After installing
SS7.1, I copied the booter and the INSTALL kernel via AppleTalk from my
LC 580. I then attached an external SCSI CD-ROM to the PB165, put in
a NetBSD 1.5.2 CD a friend made for me, and booted the INSTALL kernel.
Sysinst booted and ran just fine, and after a bit of a wait for the
install I rebooted. I ran the booter, pointed it at the netbsd kernel
that was freshly installed on the FFS partition, hit "Boot now" and was
told that "The kernel option _boothowto is not set". Strange.
I booted with the INSTALL kernel again, reinstalled kern.tgz, waited
while all the devices were rebuilt (do they really need to be rebuilt
after EVERY set install, without asking?) I rebooted, ran the Booter,
and am now told:
MID_M68K executable: entry 0x2e00.
len = 56267491, 1806668 + 100204 + 208980 + 227448 + 53662047, avail
Boot error: Not enough free memory to load the kernel.
This seems to show about 900K more than is needed. So what gives?
