After installing NetBSD 2.1 on an Ultra 60, some strange things happend.
When I do an ls -al /etc , no files seems to exist in this dir.
However, when I do an vi /etc/rc.conf There's no problem in edditing
If I boot into single user mode, and do again an ls -al /etc/ all the
files get listed.
So I tried to make a tar file of /etc in single user mode, and
untarred this in multi usermode.
Next thing I know, all files and dir in / are not listed with ls -al /
But cd /usr works. and an ls -al /usr also.
This machine is running NetBSD 2.0 for more then 4 months now without
So I figured, maybe its just my disk , this seems a filesystem problem.
Instead of an upgrade, I tried a fresh install of NetBSD 2.1.
Hopefully I recieve errors when the filesystem are created, and to go
So I downloaded the NetBSD 2.1 iso, and checked the MD5SUM which is ok.
The install starts without any problem, and after saying yes to the
partition scheme, I entered a name for the disk.
But by writing the disklabel to disk , I recieved the error: disklabel
command not found.
After this advanture, I switched back to NetBSD 2.0.
dmesg and other information is lost with the reinstall.
But when needed, I can reproduce the errors and willing to do tests.
Hopefully someone could help, or give me a direction.
