I am trying to test my 9000/43T to see if it can run NetBSD. I
downladed SYS_INST, gunziped and tried to put it on a tape in my 9145
drive. The instructions say to use dd as follows
dd if=SYS_INST of=/dev/rct/c07d07 obs=20b conv=osync
Now the machine is curently runing hPUX 9.10, and it does not like the
conv-osync part. The man page talks about a conv=sync option, so I
When I booted the machine it recognized teh tape as bootable, so I
tried it. I got a screen full of funny characters followed by an
unexpected trap message.
What might I be doing wrong here?
