I'have just installed NetBSD (1.5) on my iMac 333, but I have two problems :
- I can't use the file "netbsd" to boot, even if I use the bootloader
(ofwboot.xcf), but I can boot on the file "netbsd.generic" that I copied on the
partition, without and only without using the bootloader ...
- when I boot, it works but when I'm prompted to choose the shell (in single user
mode, just after it tells me that rc_configured is set to NO), all is like frozen
... I can't type anything ...
I have another question : I don't understand how i'm supposed to tell the
installer to use some partitions as said in the install instead of partitionning
my disk and erase all data (i love backups) ? I Was forced to expand the packages
on the partitions after a newfs -O, instead of make a good clean and easy
install. Note : I have made a swap partition too.
PS : I hope my english can be understand :-)
