Ok, well, i finally got my partitions squared away, dump the fs, etc....i
ran ./MAKEDEV all (a PITA since chown/chmod/chgrp aren't on the minroot,
nor does root, bin, wheel exist in the miniroot's /etc/* ...)..got that
done, the devices look good, copy the kernel over from the miniroot to
the partition, peachy...reset the box, type 'boot 5/rz0a/netbsd) ...and
this is what i get:
Starting at 0x80030000
KN02-AA V5.3t (PC: 0x801ffafc, SP: 0x8002ff90)
i.e. it goers to start..then stops and dumps me back off at a boot prompt.
Now, what int he dickins is goin on here? I can't think of a single
reason why it shouldn't boot..i newfs'd the partiytions; no complaints
there. Dumping the distro; no complaints there. Everything should be
perfect..so what the heck am i missing? what broke? Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance...
