I managed to get my 3100 clear up to multi-user mode, and then logged in as
root to do some final tweaking. So what do I need to set the environment
variable TERM to so that it will work on the bare console? I'm not on a
terminal, but on the 3100 monitor and keyboard.
I can bring up other vi's without a TERM variable, and get a funky
single-line mode, but it appears that the netbsd version of vi doesn't
support this. That's kind of a shame, since it was a good way to get support
for most any terminal you could find.
I also unpacked the etc.tar.gz from ftp.netbsd.org, and it created an
/etc/fstab that didn't set up /usr as rw, but rather as xx. This caused
the fsck -p to ignore that partition, and it didn't get mounted during
the boot process for going to multi-user. I changed the 'xx' to 'rw',
and it then came up just fine.
During the process of coming up, timed is dumping core. Is this a known
I also brought the machine up on my network, and mounted another disk
ifconfig le0 22.214.171.124
mount_nfs 126.96.36.199:/disk1 /mnt
and I can see the directories under /mnt, but when I copy things, I get
quite a few 'bad packet' errors from the kernel. Things come across the
link OK, just with lots of retries. Did I miss something?
Thanks for the help.
