I am not sure if this is the correct forum in which to ask the following question, but I will give a go at it.
I've been using NetBSD for a few years now. Currently I have NetBSD/i386 1.4 installed and I wish to upgrade to NetBSD 1.5.1. In the past, I have downloaded the updated kern.tgz set, moved my old kernel to netbsd.old, and installed the new kernel in /. I then restart to make sure the kernel runs, and then continue by installing the base.tgz package, et al...
I have done everything I described above for NetBSD 1.5.1. When booting, though, I get the error "Inappropriate file type or format" when it tries to load wd0a:netbsd. It then will switch over to wd0a:netbsd.old.
It has been quite a while since I installed a new kernel on a NetBSD system, so I may have missed a step or overlooked a small detail.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.
