I'm attempting to do a fresh install of 1.4.1 on a DS5000/25 that is currently
running Ultrix v4.4, following the installation instructions on the web page.
1) I want to move the /usr mount point from the d partition to the g parti-
tion. I can tell sysinstall that /usr belongs on g, but I can't
figure out how to *remove* it from d. I tried just making d's mount
point be something bogus, but then sysinstall complains about over-
lapping partitions and won't let me continue. How do I *delete* the
mount point in sysinstall's disk-partitioning menu system?
2) BTW, the installation instructions on the web page say to boot "install"
after dd'ing the diskimage to disk, but that fails; in fact, "netbsd"
is the correct kernel image to boot
3) I have all the .tgz sets on the Ultrix disk, but sysinstall refuses to
find them; it appears as though the install kernel can't success-
fully mount the Ultrix disk. I tried mounting the disk after getting
to a shell prompt to diagnose this, and found that mounting the
Ultrix disk as an ffs file system fails (because it thinks the super-
block is invalid, IIRC), and mounting the Ultrix disk as a ufs file
system fails because mount_ufs isn't around.
So I'm gonna try installing from a local FTP machine instead; but I'd really
like to know how to solve problem #1 first ...
AdTHANKSvance for any clues.
