Sorry to ask what may be a dumb question, but as a newbie most of my
questions are, well, newbie-ish, so here goes.
I'm trying to load the boot floppy (boot.fs from the 1.42 version of
netbsd). I made the disk as per the instructions (using SunTar).
I set the OF on my Performa 6360 with OF 2.0 using BootVariables (because
Sytem Disk doesn't work on the Performa). The variables I set are:
use-nvramrc true (but I don't know if this is right)
I couldn't find any additional patches for my firmware, but I can say
that it does not look like Boot Variables added any patches.
Then I reboot into OF with no problems. And I type:
and various permutations of that command.
And I get these errors:
"can't load from this device"
"bad partition number using 0claim failed"
I can hear the floppy drive start to respond, but then I get an error.
I've also had the machine start spinning the floppy and then
automatically rebooting into OF with the error "claim failed"
I used devalias to see the list of aliases (the floppy is
/bandit/ohare/swim3) and dev / ls...
I know that there must be a simple solution to this problem, but I have
no idea what it is.
I searched the mail-list archives with no luck, and I searched apple's
site, and the OF sites linked on the netbsd pages, and everything else
under the sun : |
So: any help out there? Performas are know to work from what I can
tell. Is there a link to a page that I'm missing?
Grateful thanks for any help you can provide,
