This machine has 2 disks, using Solaris on sd0 I formatted sd1 with
a: 40 cyl intended for /
b: 130 cyl for swap
c: whole disk
g: 2500 cyl for /usr
Copied miniroot ( ./installation/miniroot/miniroot-14L.fs.gz )
to a local server, un-GNU-zip, copied it by dd onto /dev/rsd1b
Reboot from /dev/rsd1b proceeded with install, no visible errors.
Copied all the sets from ./binary/sets to a local server, miniroot
installed them by ftp , again no visible errors after I learnt
from my mistakes.
Detached sd0 try to reboot from sd1 using
boot disk1 netbsd -s
floods of messages, ending with
root on sd0a dumps on sd0b
and a shell prompt. My problem is that the root drive / is mounted
read-only & I cannot reconfigure anything.
root_device on / type ffs (local, read-only)
mount -u says
mount_ffs: /dev/sd1a: on / : specified device does not match mounted
mount -o remount says
mount_ffs: -o remount: option not supported
I tried boot disk1 netbsd -as
but dont know how to answer its questions. At any rate when it asks
for a root device it wont accept sd1a , it insists on le0 or fd0 or
I can find nothing about this in the Install documents.
