I saw that too, and I'm guessing that is why my ep1 does not work.
I can not ping anywhere -- even by ip address. (I think that there
should be several irq's off limits at least 1,2,4,7,8,13,14,15)
There are more problems too. I can not configure a disk label with
sysinst. After I'm done, it tells me there are conflicts between the b
and e partition when I go to partition by hand. I tried letting it use
its defaults. It still did not work, now there are conflicts between
a and b. So much for option a.
option b: (upgrade) hung when trying to ftp stuff in.
option c: (reinstall) failed to be able to mount the e partition.
1. Didn't we decide to bring the configure network to the the main
2. I still think that it would be nice to replace the x -- xmenu
page with n -- next DO THE NEXT THING.
3. I have an exsting label anyway on the first label page it tells
real geom: 1048 cyl, 16, 63
bios geom: 523 cyl, 32, 63
after you continue I get
disklabel: geom: 1048 cyl, 16, 63
real geom: 1050 cyl, 16, 63
I don't particularly care what mistakes might or might not exist
on any previous disklabel. BUT REAL SHOULD ALWAYS BE THE SAME!
3a. If you do a reenter geometry and hit carriage returns it reads
these as 0. (same sort of thing happens when editting partition
