Re: Problem installing NetBSD 7.1.1 on my SparcStation 5

Unfortunately I can't find the MAKEDEV script in base.tgz.

[root@soqc1-jumpstart1 ~]$ /usr/sfw/bin/wget ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-7.1.1/sparc/binary/sets/base.tgz
--2018-01-16 21:28:45--  ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-7.1.1/sparc/binary/sets/base.tgz
[root@soqc1-jumpstart1 ~]$ gunzip base.tgz 
[root@soqc1-jumpstart1 ~]$ tar -tvf base.tar | egrep "MAKEDEV|./dev/" | grep -v /usr/include
lrwxr-xr-x   0/0       12 Dec 22 21:56 2017 ./dev/log symbolic link to /var/run/log
drwxr-xr-x   0/0        0 Dec 22 21:37 2017 ./dev/altq
drwxr-xr-x   0/0        0 Dec 22 21:37 2017 ./dev/fd

So I copied it from another working NetBSD server and netbooted the SS5 with the NFS Share on Solaris. It kind of worked and not. I mean I didn't see the "File too big" error when doing a "ls -lh /dev" but I started to see "sh: can't access tty: job control truned off" when starting a shell and when I try to install it fails with "I can't find any hard disk for use by NetBSD. You will be returned to the original menu"

Just for the record (and in case you were not aware) there is a gnu tar
binary in /usr/sfw/bin/gtar on a standard solaris 10 install.
