Re: Update of NetBSD bring-up
And don't forget to create a few devices in /dev also. IIRC, you will need
to do something like "cd /dev; ./MAKEDEV std" which will create
/dev/null, and a few other commonly used devices. You probably will want to
create some tty devices and a few ptys as well, and you might as well do it
all at once.
I have vague memories of forgetting to do that, and needing to download the
install image again to get to the point where I could do that. I think the
images were a meg or so at the time, and took about forever to download over
the serial line when you wanted to play with your new (or upgraded) toy

What is missing ? Do I have to extract the etc-package before I reboot ?
It sounded good until you couldn't use pax. tar is the program on the
ram disk that you should use. You need to extract on sd0 at least
base.tgz and etc.tgz to get your sd0 ready for booting.
Reboot the install image, mount sd0 and extract using tar those sets.
If you don't change the sd0's version of /etc/rc.conf, the boot should
stay in single user mode until you edit that file. Read more about it
in the INSTALL.* documents with the distribution. I'm presuming you
are using 1.5.3 distribution to get your disk set up.
